To help better understand the expectations of this year’s NEESR proposal process, researchers are encouraged to participate in this proposal preparation webinar. Registration is free at NEESR Webinar. You may register in advance and receive reminders or on day of event; however, please allow several minutes in advance of program for the registration process.

The 2011 NEESR Program Solicitation NSF 11-512, due March 9, 2011, especially seeks ground-breaking, transformative basic research, requiring the use of NEES equipment sites and/or data curated and archived in the NEES Project Warehouse, which will produce fundamentally new approaches to earthquake loss reduction and experimental simulation, i.e., rethinking the "science" of earthquake engineering from basic concepts of materials and design to complete systems to multi-hazard approaches to sustainable mitigation. Research that will make significant reuse of data in the NEES Project Warehouse must lead to new fundamental knowledge for earthquake hazard mitigation. Proposals may range from a single investigator proposal to a small, focused research group proposal to a multi-disciplinary, multi-organizational proposal.

Proposals may utilize, in conjunction with the NEES experimental facilities, other major facilities, instrumentation, and observatories; especially encouraged are use with: Earth Science (EarthScope)/Earthquake Engineering (NEES) Research Opportunities, Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS), and NEES/E-Defense Earthquake Engineering Research Collaboration. Proposal details are available at NEESR Program Solicitation.

As a supplement to the process, NEEScomm has developed the NEESR Proposal One-Stop Shop, a central location on nees.org with links to information and material that may be helpful during the preparation phase of your proposal as well as following notice of award. It includes links to the new Data Plan Template to facilitate your work in preparing the data plan for your proposal, the Vision 2020- An Open Space Technology Workshop on the Future of Earthquake Engineering Report, the Equipment Site Policy Compliance Check (ESPCC) and more.
