Important Announcements

A brief guide NSF's Technical Reporting Requirements is now available to inform Principal Investigators about the information that should be included in annual, final, and project outcome reports. As of March 18, 2013, all NSF reports must be submitted through Research.gov. PIs who have not had experience with the reporting modules in Research.gov may find the Getting Started Guide useful.

Interdisciplinary Research Across the SBE Sciences, Including a New Interdisciplinary Behavioral and Social Sciences (IBSS) Competition.  Based on feedback gathered during the SBE 2020 visioning process and presented in Rebuilding the Mosaic, the Directorate for Social, Behavioral & Economic Sciences (SBE) encourages investigators to submit proposals that go beyond the boundaries of traditional disciplines, span across the existing core SBE programs, or extend outside the SBE sciences.  A new Dear Colleague Letter outlines a range of options for pursuing support for interdisciplinary research that bridges the social, behavioral, and economic (SBE) sciences.  Among these options is a new competition for Interdisciplinary Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (IBSS).  Consult the IBSS website and the IBSS solicitation for more information.
