Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience (CRCNS)
Questions concerning a particular project’s focus, direction and relevance to a participating funding organization should be addressed to:
The French National Research Agency (ANR) will consider US-French Research Proposals and US-French Data Sharing Proposals submitted to NSF in response to this solicitation. The modalities of participation of the French applicants are presented in the annex to this solicitation available on the ANR website at http://www.agence-nationale-recherche.fr/crcns-2014. It is not necessary for a parallel proposal to be submitted directly to ANR.
The French applicants are strongly encouraged to contact ANR prior to submission:
Mathieu Girerd, Scientific Officer, Information and Communication Sciences and Technologies Department, telephone: +33 1 7354 8213, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Serawit Bruck-Landais, Scientific Officer, Biology and Health Department, telephone: +33 1 7354 8170, email: Serawit.Bruck@agencerecherche.fr
Germany's Federal Ministry of Education and Research will consider US-German Research Proposals and US-German Data Sharing Proposals submitted in response to this solicitation. The durations of these projects are expected to be no greater than three years. Investigators contemplating projects that would require longer durations are advised to discuss their project requirements with the appropriate agency contact(s) before submitting. Collaborating investigators in US-German projects selected for funding will provide assurance to BMBF that a cooperation agreement, covering issues including intellectual property, has been established. A proposal with the same project description as the proposal to NSF must be submitted by the German PI to BMBF. German applicants are referred to the BMBF Richtlinien (http://www.gesundheitsforschung-bmbf.de/de/5078.php) for further instructions, and are urged to contact the project management organization for advice on applications:
The U.S.-Israel Binational Science Foundation will consider US-Israeli Research Proposals submitted in response to this solicitation. No more than four years of support may be requested. A proposal with the same project description as the proposal to NSF must be submitted by both the US and Israeli PIs to the BSF. The budget for the Israeli component of the project should be expressed in US Dollars. Submittal instructions are available at: http://www.bsf.org.il/ElectronicSubmission/GatewayFormsAndGuidelines.aspx?PageId=7&innerTextID=0

CRCNS is affiliated with the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research (http://neuroscienceblueprint.nih.gov/), and involves nine participating NIH Institutes and Centers. An NIH Notice (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-MH-14-002.html) is being issued in parallel with this solicitation. Proposals are selected for potential NIH funding on the basis of the common CRCNS joint review process; resubmission of proposals directly to NIH is by invitation only. No NIH awards will exceed $250,000 per year in direct costs. Further questions may be directed to:

Important Notice to Proposers
A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG), NSF 13-1, was issued on October 4, 2012 and is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 14, 2013. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 13-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.
Please be aware that significant changes have been made to the PAPPG to implement revised merit review criteria based on the National Science Board (NSB) report, National Science Foundation's Merit Review Criteria: Review and Revisions. While the two merit review criteria remain unchanged (Intellectual Merit and Broader Impacts), guidance has been provided to clarify and improve the function of the criteria. Changes will affect the project summary and project description sections of proposals. Annual and final reports also will be affected.
Full Proposal Deadline Date: October 28, 2014
Computational neuroscience provides a theoretical foundation and a rich set of technical approaches for understanding complex neurobiological systems, building on the theory, methods, and findings of computer science, neuroscience, and numerous other disciplines.
Through the CRCNS program, the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF), the French National Research Agency (Agence Nationale de la Recherche, ANR), and the United States-Israel Binational Science Foundation (BSF) support collaborative activities that will advance the understanding of nervous system structure and function, mechanisms underlying nervous system disorders, and computational strategies used by the nervous system.
Two classes of proposals will be considered in response to this solicitation:
Research Proposals describing collaborative research projects, and
Data Sharing Proposals to enable sharing of data and other resources.
Domestic and international projects will be considered. As detailed in the solicitation, international components of collaborative projects may be funded in parallel by the participating agencies. Opportunities for parallel funding are available for US-German Research Proposals, US-German Data Sharing Proposals; US-French Research Proposals, US-French Data Sharing Proposals; and US-Israel Research Proposals.
Appropriate scientific areas of investigations may be related to any of the participating funding organizations. Questions concerning a particular project's focus, direction and relevance to a participating funding organization should be addressed to the appropriate person in the list of agency contacts found in Section VIII of the solicitation.
NSF will coordinate and manage the review of proposals jointly with participating domestic and foreign funding organizations, through a joint panel review process used by all participating funders. Additional information is available in Section VI of the solicitation.
