Idaho EPSCoR Track-1

Idaho EPSCoR Announces Concept Proposal Competition

The Idaho Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) is seeking concept proposals to generate ideas for its next submission to the National Science Foundation.

Idaho EPSCoR has established this internal, statewide competition to develop a final proposal to the NSF for the 2017 EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Improvement (RII) Track-1 competition.

The 2017 Idaho RII Track-1 proposal must pursue establishing a national niche and internationally recognized scientific research in an element of Food, Energy and Water Systems (FEWS), as defined by the NSF.

The objective of the EPSCoR RII is to build Idaho's research infrastructure; help colleges, departments and programs transform themselves; support the Idaho Science & Technology plan; contribute to the institutional strategic plans; and build regional, national and international recognition. The Idaho EPSCoR Committee members stress that their ultimate goal is to help institutions build the intellectual environments where faculty can excel and build the research capacity of Idaho. 

Concept proposals should build on, but not repeat, past EPSCoR Investments and accomplishments and align with state and institutional strategic plans. They should position Idaho to be research competitive beyond the RII award in areas of state, regional and national significance.

Concept proposals must be submitted by 5 p.m. Pacific time on Wednesday, Aug. 31.

For concept proposal information an in-depth explanation of Idaho EPSCoR’s expectations for the RII Track-1 process, download the Request for Proposals

Concept proposals must be submitted in Word format to rschumak@uidaho.edu by 5 p.m. Pacific time on Wednesday, Aug. 31, 2016. 

Preliminary proposals will be due in Word format to rschumak@uidaho.edu by 5 p.m. Pacific time Friday, Nov. 18, 2016.

The Idaho EPSCoR RII Track-1 competition begins with the call for concept proposals.

In Phase I of the competition, the Idaho EPSCoR committee will interview the lead authors of a small number of concept proposals, then select an anticipated two to five proposals to move on.

In Phase II, proposers will submit a longer preliminary proposal for rigorous and independent external peer review and internal assessment.

In Phase III, the committee will select the strongest preliminary proposal as Idaho’s next RII Track-1 proposal. The selected finalist will receive state and institutional support to develop a full proposal and will undergo at least two rounds of external peer review and modification prior to submittal.
