NSF – Decision, Risk, and Management Sciences (DRMS)

Date Due: 01/18/18, annually thereater; 08/18/18, annually thereafter

Amount: Not Specified

Summary: The Decision, Risk and Management Sciences program supports scientific research directed at increasing the understanding and effectiveness of decision making by individuals, groups, organizations, and society. Disciplinary and interdisciplinary research, doctoral dissertation research improvement grants (DDRIGs), and workshops are funded in the areas of judgment and decision making; decision analysis and decision aids; risk analysis, perception, and communication; societal and public policy decision making; management science and organizational design. The program also supports small grants that are time-critical (Rapid Response Research – RAPID) and small grants that are high-risk and of a potentially transformative nature (Early-Concept Grants for Exploratory Research – EAGER).

Keywords: decision, resilience, interdisciplinary, student

NSF – Engineering for Natural Hazards (ENH)

Date Due: 09/15/17, annually thereafter; 01/24/18, annually thereater

Amount: Not Specified

Summary: ENH supports fundamental research to understand and mitigate the impact of natural hazards, such as earthquakes, windstorms (such as tornadoes and hurricanes), tsunamis, and landslides, on constructed civil infrastructure. Research that considers civil infrastructure performance over its lifetime in the context of multiple hazards, that is, a multi-hazard approach, is encouraged.  Research may integrate engineering advances with other science and engineering fields.

Keywords: engineering, resilience

NSF – Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC)

Date Due: 10/10/17 (MEDIUM); 10/20/17 (FRONTIER), 11/15/17 (SMALL), 12/13/17 (CYBERSECURITY EDUCATION)

Amount: up to $500,000 for up to 3 years (SMALL), $500,001 to $1.2M for up to 4 years (MEDIUM), $5M TO $10M for up to 5 years (FRONTIER)

Summary: The goals of the Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC) program are aligned with the Federal Cybersecurity Research and Development Strategic Plan (RDSP) and the National Privacy Research Strategy (NPRS) to protect and preserve the growing social and economic benefits of cyber systems while ensuring security and privacy. The RDSP identified six areas critical to successful cybersecurity R&D: (1) scientific foundations; (2) risk management; (3) human aspects; (4) transitioning successful research into practice; (5) workforce development; and (6) enhancing the research infrastructure. The NPRS, which complements the RDSP, identifies a framework for privacy research, anchored in characterizing privacy expectations, understanding privacy violations, engineering privacy-protecting systems, and recovering from privacy violations. In alignment with the objectives in both strategic plans, the SaTC program takes an interdisciplinary, comprehensive and holistic approach to cybersecurity research, development, and education, and encourages the transition of promising research ideas into practice.
