In preparation for the next round of DOE EPSCoR Implementation grant applications, the Idaho DOE EPSCoR office has developed the following plan.
At this time there has been no announcement about the due date for the next round of DOE EPSCoR Implementation grant applications. Each EPSCoR jurisdiction is allowed to submit one proposal per round of competition to the Implementation program. This announcement will begin the process in Idaho to select that one project idea.
Teams of scientists from the universities across the state are encouraged to develop, in partnership with National Labs, white papers describing a research project to be proposed to DOE EPSCoR.
Research topics must be relevant to DOE research and support the DOE’s overarching mission by supporting basic and applied research and development across a wide range of non-defense topical areas across the Department including Advanced Scientific Computing Research, Basic Energy Sciences, Biological and Environmental Research, Fusion Energy Sciences, High Energy Physics, and Nuclear Physics in the Office of Science. It may also support research relevant to other DOE programs including but not limited to: the Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability, the Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy, the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy, the Energy Information Administration, the Office of Environmental Management, the Office of Fossil Energy, the Office of Legacy Management, non-defense needs of the National Nuclear Security Administration, and the Office of Nuclear Energy.
