The new NSF Solicitation for the next round of EarthCube-funded projects is now online: "EarthCube Science-Enabling Data Capabilities" and "EarthCube RCN" (NSF 16-514). Potential bidders can access a wealth of guidance on the EarthCube site.
Full proposal deadlines:
- March 05, 2019: EarthCube Science-Enabling Data Capabilities [link]
- March 14, 2019: EarthCube RCN [link]
The solicitation represents two funding opportunities to advance geosciences research:
- Science-Enabling Data Capabilities: This opportunity builds capabilities to improve geosciences data use and reuse for observational, experimental, and computational research that is interoperable with emerging standards and resources.
- EarthCube Research Coordination Networks (RCNs): This opportunity supports the formation of RCNs closely tied to the science and data needs of core geosciences programs and domains supported by GEO.
Proposals will be evaluated on how successfully they meet the Specific Requirements:
a. Advancing geosciences research
b. Reuse of existing tools/infrastructure
d. Metrics and assessment
