Division of Chemistry's Virtual Office Hour
December 20, 2022
Upcoming Office Hour
New Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) Solicitation (NSF 23-519)
Please join NSF-CHE for a Special Office Hour on January 5, 2023, beginning at 1-2PM ET for a Q&A session on the new MRI solicitation NSF 23-519: https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2023/nsf23519/nsf23519.htm.
An MRI award supports the acquisition of a multi-user research instrument that is commercially available through direct purchase from a vendor, or for the personnel costs and equipment that are required for the development of an instrument with new capabilities, thereby advancing instrumentation capabilities and enhancing expertise for instrument design and fabrication at academic institutions.
In the new solicitation, "Track 1" has been revised to include proposals that request funds from NSF greater than $100,000 and less than $1,400,000. "Track 2" has been revised to include proposals that request funds from NSF greater than or equal to $1,400,000 up to and including $4,000,000.
A new track has been added ("Track 3") to incorporate opportunities, consistent with section 10373 of the "CHIPS and Science Act of 2022" (42 U.S.C. 19083), for proposal requests that include the acquisition, development, installation, operation, and maintenance of equipment and instrumentation to reduce consumption of helium.
This office hour will describe the scope of the program, the newly implemented changes, and other issues related to this solicitation. There will be a Q&A session; please join us and bring your questions if you are interested.
Pre-registration is required: https://nsf.zoomgov.com/meeting/register/vJIsfu6srjItHsV5XE5YT7RVBhHb8I9_Sv4
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
Attendees requiring closed captioning should contact the Chemistry division at email@example.com at least 48 hours in advance to ensure that this service is available.
If there are any topics you think CHE should cover in up-coming office hours, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The U.S. National Science Foundation propels the nation forward by advancing fundamental research in all fields of science and engineering. NSF supports research and people by providing facilities, instruments and funding to support their ingenuity and sustain the U.S. as a global leader in research and innovation. With a fiscal year 2023 budget of $9.5 billion, NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 40,000 competitive proposals and makes about 11,000 new awards. Those awards include support for cooperative research with industry, Arctic and Antarctic research and operations, and U.S. participation in international scientific efforts.
