Navigating the New Arctic (USA)
The Navigating the New Arctic program from the National Science Foundation supports innovative arctic research. The program seeks interdisciplinary approaches that combine the social, natural, environmental, computing and information sciences, and engineering to address the interactions or connections among natural and built environments and social systems, and how these connections inform our understanding of Arctic change and its local and global effects. This solicitation requests proposals that fall within one of three tracks:
- NNA Incubator Grants, dedicated to developing convergent teams to carry out research projects of larger scope in the future;
- NNA Research Grants, aimed to support creative projects on fundamental research that address convergent scientific and engineering challenges related to the rapidly changing Arctic; and
- NNA Collaboratory Grants, designed to support collaborative teams undertaking research and training initiatives addressing grand challenges related to the rapidly changing New Arctic.
Applications are open to US-based researchers. Amount and duration of funding is track dependent:
- NNA Incubator Grants with a total budget of up to $300,000 and a maximum duration of 24 months.
- NNA Research Grants with a total budget of up to $3,000,000 and a maximum duration of 5 years.
- NNA Collaboratory Grants with no budget restrictions and a maximum duration of 5 years.
Opportunity number: 22-520.
The next applications close on February 14, 2024.
