Request for Input on NSF TIP Directorate, New EPSCoR Opportunities Announced & Connect with NASA Ames Research Center

NSF Seeks Input on TIP Directorate

NSF has issued a Request for Information (RFI,) to gather insights for the development of an investment roadmap for its Directorate for Technology, Innovation and Partnerships (TIP), in accordance with the “CHIPS and Science Act” of 2022. NSF seeks feedback from individuals and organizations across all sectors — industry, academia, nonprofits, government, venture capital, civil society and others — on prioritizing and focusing TIP investments to advance U.S. technological competitiveness and address societal and economic needs as well as workforce gaps through use-inspired and translational research, public and private partnerships, and crosscutting investments.

Respond to the RFI by July 27, 2023

Two New NSF EPSCoR Funding Opportunities

NSF’s Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) announced two new funding programs:

EPSCoR Collaborations for Optimizing Research Ecosystems Research Infrastructure Improvement (E-CORE RII)

EPSCoR Research Incubators for STEM Excellence Research Infrastructure Improvement (E-RISE RII).

Boise State is part of the recently awarded EPSCoR Track-1 (I-CREWS) and, therefore, not eligible for these two new funding opportunities at this time. The Division of Research and Economic Development will host information sessions in the fall to discuss the potential of these opportunities and organize future submissions for these opportunities as a campus community.

Connect with Researchers at NASA Ames Research Center

NASA Ames Research Center is meeting with researchers to help establish new collaborative relationships between researchers in Idaho and those at NASA Ames. The NASA team has identified 8 Research Priorities. The research discussions will consist of two virtual meetings on Thursday June 22, 2023 and July 13, 2023. Some researchers will be selected to give a 2-minute presentation about their research program/capability relevant to one of the research priorities.

Researchers interested in participating must submit their application as soon as possible and before May 31, 2023. Reach out to for specific instructions on applying.
