NSF seeks conference and research proposals on clean energy topics -- join the webinar on May 31
May 24, 2023
As energy use in the U.S. continues to grow, the use of clean, sustainable energy sources must increase to meet demand. These sources include energy from biomass, geothermal, wind, hydropower, tidal power, and solar sources. Clean energy represents new efficient technology based on novel fundamental concepts, the energy saved through increased energy efficiency, and conservation measures for existing technologies, as well as energy derived from renewable sources.
With new Dear Colleague Letters, the NSF calls for conference proposals on identifying collaborative research opportunities for advancing science and technology for clean energy, and for Research Advanced by Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering (RAISE) and EArly-concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGER) proposals in the area of clean energy technologies.
Learn about themes of interest, submission instructions, and other information at:
- Dear Colleague Letter: Conference Proposals on Clean Energy Topics (NSF 23-108)
- Dear Colleague Letter: Clean Energy Technology RAISE or EAGER Proposals (NSF 23-109)
Ask questions about NSF’s new clean energy funding opportunities in a webinar on Wednesday, May 31, 2023, at 3:00 p.m. Eastern. During the webinar, Program Directors will share information about themes of interest, submission instructions, and more.
The U.S. National Science Foundation propels the nation forward by advancing fundamental research in all fields of science and engineering. NSF supports research and people by providing facilities, instruments and funding to support their ingenuity and sustain the U.S. as a global leader in research and innovation. With a fiscal year 2023 budget of $9.5 billion, NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 40,000 competitive proposals and makes about 11,000 new awards. Those awards include support for cooperative research with industry, Arctic and Antarctic research and operations, and U.S. participation in international scientific efforts.
