Interdisciplinary Research across the SBE Sciences  (IDR)

The Directorate for Social, Behavioral & Economic Sciences (SBE) encourages investigators to submit proposals that go beyond the boundaries of traditional disciplines, span across the existing core SBE programs, or extend outside the SBE sciences. Proposals can be from individual investigators or teams, but are expected to use an integrated, interdisciplinary approach and generate results that will contribute to multiple disciplines. The scale of such projects may also exceed the current average award size in SBE, if a large team is required for the research. The lead PI is expected to be from a discipline appropriate for the host SBE program, but collaborators may be from any area of science. In the case of large projects that bring together researchers from multiple disciplines, the SBE Office of Multidisciplinary Activities (SMA) may contribute funds in addition to those available from standing SBE programs.  For additional information about this activity, please visit the Dear Colleague Letter: For Interdisciplinary Research Across the SBE Sciences.
