Solicitation: DE-FOA-0000663:

On or about March 2, 2012, the Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (“ARPA-E”) intends to issue an Open Funding Opportunity Announcement (“Open FOA” or “FOA”). The objective of the Open FOA is to identify high-risk, high-reward concepts for energy-related technologies that may enhance our nation’s energy and economic security.  This FOA will be open to any energy-related technology that, if successful, will have a transformational and disruptive effect on the energy sector.

ARPA-E is seeking your comments on the draft Open FOA.  An overview of the application process is provided in Section I.B of the draft FOA, and a draft list of Technical Categories and Subcategories is provided in Section I.E of the draft FOA.. Please submit your written comments by email to ARPA-EOpenFOA@hq.doe.gov by 5 PM Eastern Time on Wednesday, February 29, 2012. ARPA-E will not review or consider comments submitted by other means.  Please insert “Comments on Draft Open FOA” in the subject line of your email and include your name, organization, email address, and telephone number in the body of your email.

All feedback provided will be taken into consideration, but ARPA-E will not respond to individual submissions or publish publicly a compendium of responses. This Announcement is also intended to provide an opportunity for potential Applicants to begin the process of developing partnerships and gathering data for their applications. All of the information in this Announcement and the Attachment below is subject to change.  Once the final FOA is issued in March 2012, Applicants will have a limited amount of time to submit a mandatory Notice of Intent in ARPA-E eXCHANGE, ARPA-E’s online application portal (https://arpa-e-foa.energy.gov). Applicants must submit a separate Notice of Intent for each Concept Paper through ARPA-E eXCHANGE by the deadline stated in the FOA. Failure to comply with this requirement will render the Applicant’s Concept Paper ineligible for consideration (see Section III.C.1 of the draft FOA). Please note that the draft Open FOA is designated as DE-FOA-0000663. When issued in March 2012, the final Open FOA will have a different designation, namely DE-FOA-0000670. ARPA-E Draft Open FOA RFI 2-8-12

2. Innovations Deserving Exploratory Analysis (IDEA) Programs – Dept Transportation

Due Dates: Mar 1 – Highway IDEA

Apr 1 – Safety IDEA

May 1 - Transit IDEA

Innovations Deserving Exploratory Analysis (IDEA) programs fund research into promising but unproven innovations for highways, transportation safety, and transit. The programs' goals are to seek out and support new transportation solutions that are unlikely to be funded through traditional sources. Top three things selection committees are looking for in IDEA proposals are innovation, benefits, and science. The following three IDEA programs are active and receiving proposals:

1. NCHRP Highway IDEA - this program seeks proposals with potential to advance the construction, safety, maintenance, and management of highway systems. The program is sponsored by the member states of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials.

2. Transit IDEA - the Transit IDEA panel has established four high-priority focus areas to encourage proposals in the following areas: (1) increasing transit ridership; (2) improving transit safety, security, and emergency preparedness; (3) improving transit capital and operating efficiencies; and (4) protecting the environment and promoting energy independence.

3. Safety IDEA - this program is sponsored by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety

Administration and the Federal Railroad Administration. The U.S. Department of Transportation has set aggressive goals for reducing fatalities and injuries. To this end, the Safety IDEA program provides funding for projects that promote innovative approaches to improving intercity bus and truck safety or railroad safety. The program encompasses vehicle improvements, operator performance, and alertness improvements; operational practices; and hazard reduction, among other interest areas.

SOL: BARDA-CBRN-BAA-12-100-SOL-00011

BARDA encourages the advanced research, development and acquisition of medical countermeasures such as vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics, as well as innovative approaches to meet the threat of CBRN agents in support of the preparedness mission and priorities of the HHS Public Health Emergency Medical Countermeasures Enterprise (PHEMCE) articulated in the PHEMCE Implementation Plan for CBRN Threats. Research Areas of Interest: 1. Vaccines Development 2. Antitoxins and Therapeutics 3. Antimicrobials and Antivirals 4. Radiological and Nuclear Agent Countermeasures 5. Chemical Agent Countermeasures 6. Diagnostics BARDA anticipates that research and development activities awarded from this Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) will serve to advance the knowledge and scientific understanding of candidates' countermeasures for CBRN threats toward eventual FDA approval and their inclusion in the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS). This synopsis is not a BAA; a BAA is anticipated on March 4, 2012. The Government expects to make 1 or more awards, subject to the availability of funds. Synopsis

SOL: DARPA-BAA-12-20
DUE: 052212
DARPA is soliciting innovative multidisciplinary research proposals to develop and demonstrate synthesis methods of materials with superior properties (>1.5X over SOA) that currently can only be made using ultrahigh pressure techniques, such that processing under conditions amenable to production scales (<2000 K and 0.5 GPa) and stability under ambient conditions is achieved. Extended solids are polymorphs/phases of simple molecules that are currently formed under ultrahigh pressure conditions where strong intermolecular bonding and tight crystal packing can be induced, leading to dramatic changes in physical, mechanical, and functional properties.

Solicitation: 12-538

Full Proposal Deadline Date: May 22, 2012

As part of NSF's Cyberinfrastructure Framework for 21st Century Science and Engineering (CIF21) activity, the Directorate for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences (SBE), the Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR), and the Office of Cyberinfrastructure seek to enable research communities to develop visions, teams, and capabilities dedicated to creating new, large-scale, next-generation data resources and relevant analytic techniques to advance fundamental research for the SBE and EHR sciences. Successful proposals will outline activities that will have significant impacts across multiple fields by enabling new types of data-intensive research. Investigators should think broadly and create a vision that extends intellectually across multiple disciplines and that includes--but is not limited to--the SBE or EHR sciences. http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=504747&org=NSF&sel_org=NSF&from=fund

Funding Number: DE-FOA-0000654

Due: LOI (Optional) – April 25, 2012; Full proposal May 21, 2012

DOE is supporting efforts by collaborative research teams to significantly lower the cost of solar energy systems. The Bridging Research Interactions through collaborative Development Grants in Energy (BRIDGE) program allows applied research teams to access the tools and staff expertise at existing DOE Office of Science research facilities so fundamental scientific discoveries can be rapidly transitioned to existing product lines and projects. The BRIDGE program is the first within the SunShot Initiative to provide engineers and scientists developing solar technologies with the tools and expertise of the Department's Office of Science research facilities, including major facilities for x-ray and neutron scattering, nanoscale science, advanced microcharacterization, environmental molecular sciences, and advanced scientific computing. This collaborative approach will accelerate innovations to lower the cost of solar technologies. http://www1.eere.energy.gov/solar/sunshot/financial_opps_detail.html?sol_id=469
