Funding Opportunity Number: NSF 20-561
Deadline: July 1
A call for fundamental research across engineering, computer and information science, and social science to inform the economy, security and resilience of the nation and the world in responding to the global threat posed by illicit supply networks. The first call of an intended three-year program has proposal submission tracks for research proposals and for planning grants to support activities leading to convergence research team formation and capacity-building within research communities interested in addressing larger-scope challenges in the future.

Application deadline: July 31
Funding amount: up to $270K per project
The annual Call for Code challenge asks innovators to create practical, effective, and high-quality applications based on one or more IBM Cloud services (e.g., web, mobile, data, analytics, AI, IoT, or weather) that can have an immediate and lasting impact on humanitarian issues. Winning solutions are deployed in communities that need the most help.
This year’s competition will have two tracks: one for solutions that help halt and reverse the impact of climate change, and one for solutions to mitigate the impact of global pandemics like COVID-19 on communities around the world. The contest seeks coding solutions in the areas of immediate crisis communication, enhanced remote education, or stronger community cooperation.

The goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to efficiently use the existing cancer registry infrastructure by augmenting data already collected with additional information needed to understand health disparities among people diagnosed with cancer. Specifically, this FOA will support the study of factors influencing observed health disparities within the framework of population-based cancer registries by the inclusion of data not routinely collected by or linked to the registries. The studies should be hypothesis-driven and multidisciplinary approaches are encouraged. Investigators are encouraged to leverage the data already collected by the registries to investigate the determinates of health disparities. The goal of these analyses will be to understand why disparities in cancer treatment and outcomes persist by identifying factors contributing to disparities and their relative importance.
Invitation Code: RFP-18-05
Cisco has issued an RFP that invites innovative proposals that investigate how machine learning and artificial intelligence (ML/AI) can benefit various aspects of networking. They are also interested in supporting research on novel ML/AI algorithms and system architectures motivated by novel applications and use cases.

Funding opportunity number: NSF 19-051
The NSF and USDA/NIFA intend to jointly fund convergent research that combines methods in agricultural, biological, and computer and information science and engineering to address pressing challenges and opportunities in digital agriculture. This Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) is aligned with NSF’s Harnessing the Data Revolution Big Idea, and aims to build capacity across disciplinary boundaries, in preparation for larger scale investments at the intersection of computational, agricultural, and biological sciences….
Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
Principal Investigators may also consider the design of instructional materials or workforce development pathways, combining computational and agricultural expertise, in the broader impacts of proposals.
Proposals pursuant to this DCL may be submitted to one of three programs:

Deadline: 25th of every month
The Strategic Research Travel Program provides funding for travel for Ohio State faculty and principal investigators to meet with program officers at current and potential sponsors to help drive the development of innovative programs and priorities for sponsor agencies.
Examples of positioning activities the grant is meant to encourage include:
These kinds of activities occur well before a sponsor releases a solicitation and are usually part of a longer-term business development plan for pursuing larger, multidisciplinary funding opportunities. Successful applicants should be able to make a case for how their proposed travel will contribute to Ohio State’s desire to develop strategic, multidisciplinary funding opportunities.
Reimbursable travel costs include airfare, per diem hotel and food expenses, and ground transportation. Awards are contingent upon the availability of funds.
Applications are reviewed monthly. Any application submitted by the 25th of the month will be reviewed that month and notified of its standing by the end of the month; applications received after that date will be reviewed the following month. If yours is an urgent request, please submit the application and then contact Janet Weisenberger, Senior Associate Vice President for the Office of Research at Weisenberger.email@example.com to explain the extenuating circumstances.
