The National Science Foundation (NSF) has issued a new solicitation for research proposals under the rubric of Navigating the New Arctic, one of the agency’s 10 Big Ideas. The solicitation estimates that – pending the availability of the anticipated funding amount of $30 million – 25 awards will be made.
This solicitation is the first of what is envisioned to be at least a five-year agency-wide program to support the research needed to inform decisions about the economy, security, and resilience of the nation, the larger region, and the globe with respect to Arctic change. NSF anticipates that future calls will further define "larger scope," with the potential to include projects up to the scale of centers and/or consortia.
More information is available on the NSF Navigating the New Arctic (NNA) webpage (see link above).
Proposal submission deadline has been extended to: 4 March 2019, 5:00 p.m. submitter’s local time.
