The NSF Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation (EFRI) Office has launched a new funding opportunity for interdisciplinary teams of researchers to embark on rapidly advancing frontiers of fundamental engineering research. For this solicitation, NSF-EFRI will consider proposals that aim to investigate emerging frontiers in the following three specific research areas:
- Flexible Bioelectronics Systems (BioFlex)
- Origami Design For The Integration Of Self-assembling Systems For Engineering Innovation (ODISSEI)
- Photosynthesis Biorefineries (PSBR)
This grant requires a data management plan, although in a different format than other NSF funding opportunities. For this grant, there should be a one-page data management plan. In addition, there should also be a separate document describing the means of sharing the research outcomes. We provide support for both of these documents, although applicants will need to format the output of the DMPTool to meet the NSF EFRI requirements. For more information on the requirements of this funding opportunity, see the program solicitation.
