U-M Automotive Research Center

By | | No Comments

Last deadline was 10/16/17. We will post any follow up here. The Automotive Research Center is a U.S. Army Center for Excellence for modeling and simulation of ground vehicles led by the University of Michigan. The center is soliciting proposals for new or continuing work with a start date in 2018. These are single proposal with one PI who is responsible for project funds and reporting requirements.

Fay/Frank Seed Grant Program 2018

By | | No Comments

Last deadline was 10/30/17. This is a limited submission – updates will be posted here. The Brain Research Foundation Fay/Frank Seed Grant Program provides start-up monies for new research projects in the field of neuroscience that will likely lead to extramural funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) or other outside funding sources.

Technological Innovations in Neuroscience Awards

By | | No Comments

Last LOI was 12/4/17. Any future opportunity will posted here. These awards encourage and support scientists working on the development of novel and creative approaches to understanding brain function. The Endowment Fund is interested in how a new technology may be used to monitor, manipulate, analyze, or model brain function at any level, from the molecular to the entire organism. Technology may take any form, from biochemical tools to instruments to software and mathematical approaches. Because the program seeks to advance and enlarge the range of technologies available to the neurosciences, research based primarily on existing techniques will not be considered.

Hardware and Software Systems Request for Proposals

By | | No Comments

Last deadline was 12/7/17. Any future opportunity will be posted here. Facebook is pleased to invite university faculty to respond to this call for research proposals on hardware and software systems; a total of 5 awards are available. During this proposal cycle, Facebook is especially interested in soliciting proposals for research at the intersection of computer systems and machine learning

Fellowship Awards

Internal deadline was 1/15/18. Sponsor Deadline 4/20/2018. See this link for the internal submission guidelines and other information fro the University of Michigan Foundation’s office. In 1988, the Packard Foundation established the Packard Fellowships for Science and Engineering to allow the nationÕs most promising professors to pursue science and engineering research early in their careers with few funding restrictions and limited reporting requirements. It provides individual grants of $875,000 for 5 years. The program arose out of David PackardÕs commitment to strengthening university-based science and engineering programs in recognition that the success of the Hewlett-Packard Company, which he cofounded, derived in large measure from the research and development in university laboratories.

Toyota Research Institute

Expired. Last deadline was 10/15/2018. Toyota Research Institute (TRI) invites proposals from the University of Michigan (ÒU-MÓ) in the areas of machine intelligence applied to robotics, self-driving cars, and automotive safety. As part of the $22M partnership with U-M announced in 2016, TRI plans to award over $2 million for new research projects starting on or after January 1, 2019, in areas of interest to TRI. Newly funded projects should have durations of one to two years.

Critical Resilient Interdependent Infrastructure Systems and Processes (CRISP 2.0)

By | | No Comments

Last deadline was March 7, 2018. This CRISP 2.0 solicitation responds both to national needs on the resilience of critical infrastructures and to increasing NSF emphasis on transdisciplinary research. In this context, the solicitation is one element of the NSF-wide Risk and Resilience activity, with the overarching goal of advancing knowledge in support of improvement of the nationÕs infrastructure resilience. The devastating effects of recent disasters such as Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria have underscored that a great deal remains to be done. In addition, CRISP 2.0 is aligned with the NSF-wide frontier thinking on convergence, characterized as Òdeep integration of knowledge, techniques, and expertise from multiple fields to form new and expanded frameworks for addressing scientific and societal challenges and opportunitiesÓ. The Directorate of Engineering and the Directorate of Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences therefore jointly invest in the CRISP 2.0 solicitation to stimulate the integration of engineering, and social, behavioral and economic sciences to foster new paradigms and domains in interdependent critical infrastructures.

Cybersecurity Innovation for Cyberinfrastructure (CICI)

By | | No Comments

Last deadline was 1/23/2019. Advancements in data-driven scientific research depend on trustworthy and reliable cyberinfrastructure. Researchers rely on a variety of networked technologies and software tools to achieve their scientific goals. These may include local or remote instruments, wireless sensors, software programs, operating systems, database servers, high-performance computing, large-scale storage, and other critical infrastructure connected by high-speed networking. This complex, distributed, interconnected global cyberinfrastructure ecosystem presents unique cybersecurity challenges. NSF-funded scientific instruments, sensors and equipment are specialized, highly-visible assets that present attractive targets for both unintentional errors and malicious activity; untrustworthy software or a loss of integrity of the data collected by a scientific instrument may mean corrupt, skewed or incomplete results._
