The Leading Culture Change through Professional Societies of Biology (BIO-LEAPS) program aims to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in the biological sciences broadly by leveraging the leadership, broad reach and unique ability of professional societies to create culture change in the life sciences. This program is designed to foster the necessary culture change within biology to move towards an equitable and inclusive culture that supports a diverse community of biologists that more fully reflects the demographic composition of the U.S. population. To achieve broad, sustained and innovative approaches for meaningful and lasting changes to occur, society leaders will need to enable and support the establishment and definition of new norms and practices in biology and to encourage engagement with experts in diversity, equity, and inclusion-related organizational change.

Amount: $2,000,000

Deadline: July 1, 2022

The DOE SC program in Basic Energy Sciences (BES) announces a re-competition of the Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) program and encourages both new and renewal applications. Applications from multi-disciplinary teams will be required to propose both discovery science and use-inspired basic research that addresses priority research directions and opportunities identified by a series of BES workshop and roundtable reports. DOE encourages applications that propose fundamental chemical sciences, materials sciences, geosciences and biosciences research that will enable future clean energy technologies and advanced manufacturing. Coordination across programs is a high priority for DOE. EFRCs under this FOA will include awards for fundamental science that underpins the Energy Earthshots Initiative.

Amount: $4,000,000

Deadline: May 3, 2022

BER invests in crosscutting technologies and programs to enable multiscale, systems-level research to understand, predict, manipulate, and design biological processes that underpin innovations for bioenergy and bioproduct research. Highly innovative, high-throughput platforms for microorganism and genome engineering strategies that efficiently produce bioenergy and bioproducts while sequestering atmospheric CO2 are encouraged. Focus can also include integrative studies to engineer plant systems to achieve sustainable production of biofuels, bioproducts, and biomaterials; substantially improve bioenergy crop performance in marginal environments; and/or increase biomass yield while making it more amenable to deconstruction and conversion into desirable chemicals.

Amount: $25,000,000

Deadline: April 6, 2022

The Institute’s NCER announces two competitions—one to accelerate recovery and one to improve pandemic recovery in education agencies. The Research Networks Focused on Critical Problems of Education Policy and Practice grant program seeks to establish the Leveraging Evidence to Accelerate Recovery Nationwide Network which will support researchers who share ideas, build new knowledge, and strengthen their research and dissemination capacity. The Improving Pandemic Recovery Efforts in Education Agencies grant program seeks to establish two research networks, with one examining recovery activities in prekindergarten through grade 12 and the other examining recovery activities in community colleges.

Amount: $3,000,000

The specific objectives of the Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier program are to facilitate multidisciplinary or convergent research that prepares people for the future world of work. Proposals to this program should describe multidisciplinary or convergent research that addresses technological, human and societal dimensions of future work and supports creative and inclusive workplaces. Technological innovations should be integrated with advances in behavioral science, computer science, economic science, engineering, learning sciences, research on adult learning and workforce training, and the social sciences. Proposals that address the impact of large-scale disruptions such as the Covid-19 pandemic on the future of jobs and work are also of interest.

Amount: $4,000,000

The Understanding the Rules of Life: Emergent Networks (URoL:EN) solicitation aims to develop a predictive understanding of how key properties of living systems emerge from interactions of factors such as genomes, phenotypes, and environments and how emerging networks of organismal, natural, social, and/or human-engineered systems respond to or influence evolving environments. Successful projects of the URoL:EN program are expected to use convergent approaches that explore emergent network properties of living systems across various levels of organizational scale and, ultimately, to contribute to understanding the rules of life through new theories and reliable predictions about the impact of specific environmental changes on behaviors of complex living systems, or engineerable interventions and technologies based on a rule of life to address associated outcomes for societal benefit.
