Save the Date! Join NSF on November 8-9, 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana for the 50th National Science Foundation Grants Conference! The Fall 2018 NSF Grants Conference will be held at the Intercontinental New Orleans.

These events are primarily designed to provide new faculty, researchers and administrators with key insights into a wide range of current issues at NSF, including proposal preparation and merit review basics, award management topics and other important information. NSF program officers representing each NSF directorate will be on hand to provide up-to-date information about specific funding opportunities and to answer attendee questions.

Registration will open on Thursday, September 6th at 12:00 PM EST. The conference sells out quickly so register as soon as you can.

Just a reminder…..if any of your tenants, clients, faculty, program managers, companies, etc. plan to attend the 2018 SBIR Road Tour event coming up April 20th in B .Rouge, and they plan to schedule time for one-on-one meetings, they should complete a Quad Chart (sample attached) and bring copies with them to hand to the various SBIR-STTR federal program agency representatives as they talk about their technologies to offer as a proposal. It would also be a really good idea if attendees did an agency/topic search on their ideas/technology prior to the event. This can be done at www.sbir.gov You can search by agency, year, or enter some key word searches at that site. Any preparation like this will make your one-on-one meeting go a lot smoother and demonstrate you have taken time to do some “homework.” Also keep in mind I have a short PowerPoint that is a prep for the April 20th event if you want it. Again, this is all designed to insure that participants get maximum benefit while attending the event.
 
NASA will be hosting a Technical Interchange Meeting (TIM) with Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) researchers at the GSFC facility in Greenbelt, MD on Wednesday June 27, 2018. As part of the NASA EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Development (RID) program here in Louisiana we are soliciting applicants who would like to attend this TIM and investigate new avenues of research with NASA partners. The TIM will be hosted on the GSFC campus where the morning of 6/27 will consist of round table discussions with individual research groups followed by lunch on-site at GSFC. The afternoon will include research laboratory familiarization. Research topics discussed during the TIM will be a subset of the GSFC research areas listed at the end of this email. Applicants should identify their top three choices from the list. Travel up to about $1,500 per person would be paid through a Louisiana NASA EPSCoR Travel Assistance Program (TAP) award. The travel estimate assumes three days of travel, with meals and rental car plus lodging at a TBD conference hotel near GSFC. It is expected that travel to Greenbelt, MD will take place on Tuesday June 26 and return to Louisiana will occur on Thursday June 28. Airfare to Baltimore / Washington International (BWI) airport (nearest to GSFC) is included in the travel estimate. Note that no foreign nationals will be allowed to attend this meeting. However, lawful permanent residents (green card holders) should be able to participate (I will need to check on this one). If you wish to participate in the GSFC TIM you must email me at guzik@phunds.phys.lsu.edu with the following information as soon as possible and definitely before April 1, 2018 1. Statement that you are committed to attend the GSFC TIM 2. List of your top three GSFC research topics. 3. Statement that you are a U.S. citizen and the following information: Full Name (as on Driver’s License) Driver’s License Number Driver’s License Expiration Date State Issuing Driver’s License Name of Institution of employment: 4. Statement that you are a lawful permanent U.S. resident with a Green Card. (Required information TBD). 5.

SBIR “Road Tour” event which is coming to Louisiana April 20th of this year. This is going to be a very special one-of-a-kind SBIR-STTR Program, which we only do once every 2-3 years. Our office, in conjunction with the U.S. SBA Office of Innovation is organizing this event which will bring numerous SBIR-STTR program managers from the various federal agencies into Louisiana to provide update briefings and to meet with attendees one-on-one (reservations made in-advance and limited to time available). Because of the nature of this event, and since the federal portion is only slightly more than ½ day, we are working with several co-sponsors to hold other SBIR-STTR sessions prior to and after the Road Tour portion that you can take advantage of. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sbir-road-tour-tickets-43328185770

The Louisiana Technology Transfer Office In conjunction with the MIST Program and the University of New Orleans This is an opportunity to learn how your innovative ideas and research efforts/capabilities, whether a technology or service – can be funded and delivered to the U.S Department of Defense. The U.S. Navy invests some $350 million of funds every year in innovative ideas. The state of Louisiana FAST (Federal and State Technology) Program, through the LA Business & Technology Center/LSU are sponsoring a Navy Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer workshop, hosted by the University of New Orleans Office of Research & Economic Development and supported by the University of Southern Mississippi’s MIST (Marine Industries Science and Technology Program). For more information and to register, please visit: website.

This event is being live-streamed to a select number of locations nationwide, one of which is the University of New Orleans.
 
The NIH Center for Scientific Review (CSR) is the portal for receipt and referral of NIH grant applications, and, for the majority of those applications, carries out the peer review process for assessing scientific and technical merit. In October, CSR will host two “online briefings” on peer review focused on the Academic Research Enhancement AREA/R15 program, and NIH small business (SBIR/STTR) programs. The briefings will be approximately one hour long, including a 30 minute question and answer period. For more information and to register for each webinar, visit the CSR event website:http://public.csr.nih.gov/Pages/csrwebinar.aspx

On April 22nd, the MIST Cluster along with our partner the Louisiana Business and Technology Center (LBTC) will be hosting a workshop presented by NASA and its research partners. This workshop will bring together beach managers, researchers, public health and remote sensing experts to exchange ideas and information about beach water quality monitoring and management.

The goal of the workshop is to help promote the use of advanced beach monitoring tools throughout the Gulf Coast in an effort to enhance state beach monitoring programs and improve public health.

The workshop will be held in the ENCE Building at Louisiana State University. For additional information and to register for this event: https://sites.google.com/a/community.nasa.gov/science-ssc-nasa-gov/home/2015-beach-monitoring-workshop.

On August 21st, the Mississippi Enterprise for Technology (MSET) will be hosting business matchmaking sessions at the Marine Technology Society's Oceans In Action Workshop. Oceans In Action focuses on the accomplishments of the government agencies, universities, and other industry organizations within the Gulf South region, featuring how marine technology is applied to real-world issues. Matchmaking "anchors" will be those Federal agencies and large prime contractors involved in marine technology in and around Stennis.
 

Who should participate in these free matchmaking sessions?
