NSF Mid-Scale Innovations Program in Astronomical Sciences (MSIP)

NSF 17-592

The Mid-Scale Innovations Program (MSIP) is designed to fill the need for a well-defined budgetary and competitive selection process to support astronomical projects of intermediate to large cost (but below the MREFC threshold).  This solicitation fills part of the mid-scale gap, from $4M to $30M. (The current budget does not allow individual project costs greater than $30M.)  The demand in this funding range covers a wide variety of activities, from highly focused short-term science experiments to long-term multi-use facilities.  Other opportunities for support include major new instruments for existing telescopes, and design and development programs for possible future mid-scale and MREFC initiatives. The makeup of MSIP includes "Open Access Capabilities" (Category 4 below), an addition to the decadal survey definition that was recommended by the 2012 MPS/AST Portfolio Review because of realized budgets for the Division of Astronomical Sciences that are far below those envisioned by the decadal survey.

In order to organize this diverse range of project type and cost for strategic evaluation and review, the MSIP competition will be divided into the following four categories:

Mid-Scale Science Projects: Self-contained, limited term projects with well-defined construction and science utilization phases.    Mid-Scale Facilities: Construction or operation of stand-alone, long-term, mid-scale facilities.   Development Investments: Design and development for future large mid-scale and large-scale facilities.   Open Access Capabilities: New instruments for existing telescopes, both national and private, in return for US community access.Provision of observing time for US community access on existing telescopes (e.g. providing open access nights in return for partial support of operational costs of a facility).Data archiving and data management projects leading to public access to data resources.

NSF Major Research Instrumentation Program: (MRI) Instrument Acquisition or Development

NSF 15-504

Synopsis of Program:

The Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI) serves to increase access to shared scientific and engineering instruments for research and research training in our Nation's institutions of higher education, not-for-profit museums, science centers and scientific/engineering research organizations. The program provides organizations with opportunities to acquire major instrumentation that supports the research and research training goals of the organization and that may be used by other researchers regionally or nationally.

Each MRI proposal may request support for the acquisition (Track 1) or development (Track 2) of a single research instrument for shared inter- and/or intra-organizational use.  Development efforts that leverage the strengths of private sector partners to build instrument development capacity at MRI submission-eligible organizations are encouraged.

The MRI program assists with the acquisition or development of a shared research instrument that is, in general, too costly and/or not appropriate for support through other NSF programs.  The program does not fund research projects or provide ongoing support for operating or maintaining facilities or centers.

The instrument acquired or developed is expected to be operational for regular research use by the end of the award period. For the purposes of the MRI program, a proposal must be for either acquisition (Track 1) or development (Track 2) of a single, well-integrated instrument. The MRI program does not support the acquisition or development of a suite of instruments to outfit research laboratories or facilities, or that can be used to conduct independent research activities simultaneously.

Instrument acquisition or development proposals that request funds from NSF in the range $100,000-$4 million may be accepted from any MRI-eligible organization. Proposals that request funds from NSF less than $100,000 may also be accepted from any MRI-eligible organization for the disciplines of mathematics or social, behavioral and economic sciences and from non-Ph.D.-granting institutions of higher education for all NSF-supported disciplines.

Cost-sharing of precisely 30% of the total project cost is required for Ph.D.-granting institutions of higher education and for non-degree-granting organizations. Non-Ph.D.-granting institutions of higher education are exempt from cost-sharing and cannot include it. National Science Board policy is that voluntary committed cost sharing is prohibited.

Internal Deadline:   October 16, 2017

Full Proposal Deadline:   January 18, 2018

Limit on Number of Proposals per Organization:Three (3) as described below. Potential PIs are advised to contact their institutional office of research regarding processes used to select proposals for submission.

If three proposals are submitted, at least one of the proposals must be for instrument development (i.e., no more than two proposals may be for instrument acquisition).

Program: Novel collaborations and programs at the interface between mathematics and other fields in science or engineering. Must be a tenured faculty member with a primary appointment in mathematics. Will be expected to teach in both mathematics and the X partner department and be appointed in both departments by award start date (courtesy appointments allowed). The X partner should be department of science or engineering that will engage in significant collaboration with mathematics beyond the norm. Both departments must have doctoral programs.
Note: X partners in finance and business will not be considered. Proposals involving connections to areas where there are already well-established links with mathematics, such as economics, string theory or computational complexity, will also not be considered unless the proposal involves particularly unique collaborations.
