The DOE Office of Basic Energy Sciences (BES) announced a Funding Opportunity Announcement for Energy Frontier Research Centers (EFRCs). The competition will be open both to proposals from existing EFRCs seeking renewal of support, and to proposals from institutions seeking to establish new EFRCs under the program. Applications will be required to address priority research directions and opportunities identified in recent BES workshop and roundtable reports, the scientific grand challenges identified in the report Directing Matter and Energy: Five Challenges for Science and the Imagination, and the opportunities described in the report Challenges at the Frontiers of Matter and Energy: Transformative Opportunities for Discovery Science.
BES is soliciting proposals in four (4) topical areas: 1) Environmental Management (new and renewal proposals); 2) Quantum Information Science (new proposals only); 3) Microelectronics (new proposals only); and 4) Polymer Upcycling (new proposals only).
Proposal Limit: 2 (as the lead organization)
