1 Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) October 4, 2011 North Dakota & South Dakota EPSCoR Joint Conference 2011 1

2 What is EPSCoR? State-based capacity-building program - Governance includes State committee - Alignment with State S&T plan - Research driven: Science First! - State co-investment – 20% Cost Sharing - Economic development Multidisciplinary Multi-institutional Close interaction between NSF and the EPSCoR community Multi-faceted State-wide program!

3 EPSCoR in Context Established by NSB Resolution in 1978 Target: States receiving lesser amount of NSF research support funding Purpose: To build sustainable capacity of educational institutions in those states to compete more successfully in NSF and other research programs

4 EPSCoR Investment Strategies Research Infrastructure Improvement Awards (RII) Support physical, human, and cyber infrastructure within academic institutions at the state level Co-Funding with NSF Directorates and Offices Supports individual investigators and groups from EPSCoR jurisdictions by co-investment with disciplinary research programs in their meritorious proposals Outreach Activities and Workshops Brings EPSCoR jurisdiction investigators together with NSF program staff; builds mutual awareness and transparency

5 EPSCoR Strategic Objectives Catalyze key research themes Activate effective jurisdictional and regional collaborations Broaden participation Use EPSCoR for development, implementation, and evaluation of programmatic experiments Strengthen Jurisdictions Capacity for Competitiveness


7 EPSCoR Today Attendant to EPSCoR move to OD has been heightened visibility and the need for  Sharper research focus  Stronger integration across Foundation Increase EPSCoR competitiveness through  Increased co-funding  EPSCoR participation in NSF initiatives  Alignment of RII-supported S&E with discovery frontiers in Directorates/Offices

8 A More Effective EPSCoR EPSCoR Science & Engineering Group Strategic input from Directorates and Offices to shape the Foundation’s vision for EPSCoR and to help implement that vision Strong disciplinary expertise and guidance Raise level/broaden scope of interactions Ensure excellence and breadth of impact of EPSCoR science and engineering activities

15 Other Opportunities at NSF Programs for Specific Groups/Purpose – ADVANCE: Increasing the Participation and Advancement of Women in Academic Science and Engineering Careers – Ethics Education in Science and Engineering (EESE) – Innovation Corps Program (I-Corps) – Integrative Graduate Education & Research Traineeship Program (IGERT) – Grant Opportunities for Academic Liaison with Industry (GOALI) – Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) – Research Coordination Networks (RCN) – Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) – Research in Undergraduate Institutions (RUI) – Sustainability Research Networks Competition (SRN)

16 NSF’s website: source for information

17 Contact NSF program officers for advice and links for programs of interest Ask Early, Ask Often!

18 Becoming a reviewer for NSF

19 Research Competitiveness in the New Funding Era Good advice for beginning investigators available on NSF’s website Search for “writing a successful proposal” – E.g.: rences/2008/rpdpresentation.pdf rences/2008/rpdpresentation.pdf – Presentation by George Hazelrigg – From “The Larger Context” to “Finding a Home [at NSF]” to “Intellectual Merit and Broader Impacts Statements” to “Getting Involved”

20 Research Competitiveness in the New Funding Era What lies ahead? Follow the action on NSF’s website The saying we hear: “Flat is the new doubling” We await our FY12 budget
