Call for Pre-Proposals: Regional Awards for Cyber-enabled Research - NECC

The Northeast Cyberinfrastructure Consortium (NECC) is pleased to offer a funding opportunity for cyber-enabled research. The NECC is an interdisciplinary consortium of research and higher education institutions in five states (Delaware, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont) that are collaborating to build cyberinfrastructure in the Northeast region. The Consortium is currently affiliated with both NSF EPSCoR and NIH IDeA for specific fiber, research, workforce development, outreach and diversity programs in the region that support collaborative cyber-enabled research and education.

Regional Awards for Cyber-enabled Research (RACER) pilot awards are designed to initiate collaborative, cyber-enabled research among investigators in NECC states. The maximum amount of each award is $10,000 for a project period of 1 September 2011 through 1 August 2012. Projects must involve investigators from at least two NECC states; preference will be given to projects in water-related environmental research or bioinformatics.


Please read the RFP carefully: a pre-proposal process will be used. Pre-proposals are due 15 April 2011.
