EHR Core Research (ECR)
ECR FY14 Webinar Series
A series of four webinars on the EHR Core Research (ECR) program has been scheduled for December 2013. Presented by ECR program officers, these webinars will provide an overview of the ECR program, outline the elements of ECR proposals, and answer commonly asked questions. Advance registration is not required, and the content of all four webinars will be the same, so it is not necessary to attend more than one session. Full information about the ECR FY14 Webinar Series, including instructions for joining, is available on the NSF events page at: http://www.nsf.gov/events/event_summ.jsp?cntn_id=129720&org=EHR.

First Tuesday in February, Annually Thereafter
The EHR Core Research (ECR) program establishes a mechanism in the Directorate for Education and Human Resources to provide funding in foundational research areas that are broad, essential and enduring. EHR seeks proposals that will help synthesize, build and/or expand research foundations in the following core areas: STEM learning, STEM learning environments, workforce development, and broadening participation in STEM. We invite researchers to identify and conduct research on questions or issues in order to advance the improvement of STEM learning in general, or to address specific challenges of great importance. Two types of proposals are invited: Core Research Proposals (maximum 5 years, $1.5 million) that propose to study a foundational research question/issue designed to inform the transformation of STEM learning and education and Capacity Building Proposals (maximum 3 years, $300,000) intended to support groundwork necessary for advancing research within the four core areas.
