  • NSF Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation Grants

The National Science Foundation Office of Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation (EFRI) announces funding opportunities for interdisciplinary teams of researchers to embark on rapidly advancing frontiers of fundamental engineering research.

Catalyzing New International Collaborations

NSF 13-605

PROPOSAL: 1/22/14, 4/22/14, 7/22/14, 10/22/14

The Catalyzing New International Collaboration (CNIC) program is designed to promote professional development of US Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) researchers and to advance their research through international engagement.

Support of international activities is an integral part of NSF’s mission to sustain and strengthen the nation’s science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) capabilities. NSF recognizes the importance of enabling US researchers and educators at every career level to advance their work through international collaboration and of helping to ensure that future generations of US scientists and engineers gain professional experience beyond the nation’s borders early in their careers.


Preliminary Proposal Deadline Date:  October 29, 2013

Program Guidelines:  NSF 14-1491

The Biotechnology, Biochemical, and Biomass Engineering (BBBE) program supports fundamental engineering research that advances the understanding of cellular and biomolecular processes (in vivo, in vitro, and/or ex vivo) and eventually leads to the development of enabling technology and/or applications in support of the biopharmaceutical, biotechnology, and bioenergy industries, or with applications in health or the environment.


Preliminary Proposal Deadline Date:  October 29, 2013

Program Guidelines:  NSF 14-1417

The Chemical and Biological Separations (CBS) program supports fundamental research on novel methods and materials for separation processes.  These processes are central to the chemical, biochemical, materials, energy, and pharmaceutical industries.  A fundamental understanding of the interfacial, transport, and thermodynamic behavior of multiphase chemical systems as well as quantitative descriptions of processing characteristics in the process-oriented industries.
