DE-FOA-0001862Earth System Model Development and Analysis1/16/2018 05:00 PM ET3/19/2018 05:00 PM ET
 
Synopsis:
The Biological and Environmental Research (BER) program within the Office of Science (SC), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) hereby announces its interest in receiving research applications for Earth System Model (ESM) and Regional and Global Model Analysis (RGMA). Extreme events and Disturbances cause disproportionate damage compared to regular events, as can be seen following the hurricanes and fires that affected the US in the past year. The ability of Earth System models to credibly capture the general characteristics and tendencies of these events requires more research. Earth system models attempt to capture the two-way interaction between large-scale variability and small-scale weather, which in-turn are responsible for regional scale extremes.

DE-FOA-0001868Bioimaging Research and Approaches for Bioenergy1/19/2018 05:00 PM ET3/16/2018 11:59 PM ET
 
Synopsis:
The Biological and Environmental Research (BER) of the SC, U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) hereby announces its interest in receiving applications to support fundamental research towards enabling new bioimaging capabilities for the study of plant and microbial systems relevant to bioenergy research. New imaging instrumentation is needed to observe and characterize multiple metabolic processes occurring within the living plant and microbial systems relevant to bioenergy and bioproduct production from renewable biomass. These processes include, but are not limited to real-time dynamic imaging of metabolic pathways, the transport of materials within and among cellular organelles including plant-root and organismal interactions, enzyme function and cellular structures. Of interest is the development of multimodal imaging devices constructed by merging new, innovative and/or transformational improvements to existing capabilities which will enable simultaneous observations in synergistic combination with correlated structural and/or chemical imaging to interpret biological function in and among whole microbial or plant cells.

Synopsis:
The Biological and Environmental Research (BER) program within the Office of Science (SC), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) hereby announces its interest in receiving research applications for Environmental System Science (ESS). As part of the ESS program, the Terrestrial Ecosystem Science activity seeks to improve the understanding and representation of terrestrial ecosystems in ways that advance Earth system model parameterizations and capabilities. This FOA will consider applications that utilize and couple measurements, experiments, modeling and/or synthesis of terrestrial ecosystem across a continuum from the subsurface to the top of the vegetated canopy and from molecular to global scales. ESS hereby announces its interest in grant applications for improved quantitative and predictive understanding of critical terrestrial ecosystems processes and feedbacks preferentially within high latitude (i.e., Arctic and Boreal) and coastal ecosystems in the following areas: Interactions between above and below-ground processes and traits, impacts of disturbances on ecosystems, and coupled biogeochemical and energy fluxes at the terrestrial-aquatic interface. Applicants are required to pose their research applications in the context of representing terrestrial ecosystem processes appropriate for improving the predictability of Earth system models.

DE-FOA-0001794FY 2018 SBIR/STTR Phase II Release 112/18/2017 05:00 PM ET1/23/2018 11:59 PM ET
 
Synopsis:
The DOE invites eligible Phase I and Phase II grantees to apply for Phase II grants (both initial and sequential) under this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). Topic descriptions for this FOA can be found on the DOE SBIR/STTR web site. The purpose of an Initial Phase II grant is to perform the research and development (R&D) required to meet the DOE objectives stated in the topic and subtopic of the Phase I FOA. In addition, it is intended that the small business grantee would be in a position to pursue commercial applications of the R&D at the end of Phase II. In many cases, Phase II results in a prototype, product, or a working process that can be demonstrated to a potential investor or customer (either in the private sector or in the Federal government, including the DOE). This FOA is supplemental to the FY 2017 SBIR/STTR Phase I Release 1 FOA (DE-FOA-0001618); therefore, general information already provided in the Phase I FOA also applies to this Phase II process.

DE-FOA-00017702018 SBIR/STTR Phase I Release 111/2/2017 05:00 PM ET12/4/2017 11:59 PM ET
 
Synopsis:
Phase I grants resulting from this competition will be made during FY 2018 to small businesses with maximum award sizes of $150,000 or $225,000 depending on the topic. Please refer to the topic descriptions under this FOA found on the DOE SBIR/STTR web site at http://science.energy.gov/sbir/funding-opportunities/ to determine the maximum award size for each topic. The period of performance will depend on the scope of the effort but will not exceed 12 months. Please note that the Phase II grant application will be due approximately 9.5 months after the grant start date, with no exceptions. Grantees that select a Phase I period of performance of 9 months or less will be able to complete their Phase I project prior to submission of their Phase II grant application. Grantees that select a Phase I longer than 9 months will be able to continue R&D after their Phase II application is submitted but will not be able to utilize these results in the preparation of their Phase II application. Phase I is to evaluate, insofar as possible, the scientific or technical merit and feasibility of ideas that appear to have commercial potential and/or substantial application in support of DOE mission research. The grant application should concentrate on research that will contribute to proving scientific or technical feasibility of the approach or concept. Success in a DOE Phase I is a prerequisite to further DOE support in Phase II.
