  DOE: NE Consolidated Innovative Nuclear Research FOA: Program Directed (PD) IRPs for Only University-Led Applications DE-FOA-0000799

The Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Nuclear Energy (NE) conducts crosscutting nuclear energy research and development (R&D) and associated infrastructure support activities to develop innovative technologies that offer the promise of dramatically improved performance for advanced reactors and fuel cycle concepts while maximizing the impact of DOE resources.

The primary objective of consolidating fiscal year (FY) 2013 competitive research sought by NE in the area of innovative nuclear research into a single Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to promote efficiency and the effective use of resources.
University researchers may submit proposals in response to Sections A and B of this FOA that also require individual, discrete, and definable items or capabilities that directly support and enable the R&D application to be proposed (i.e., the requested equipment must be required to execute the R&D project).

University researchers may submit a separate proposal to DE-FOA-0000814 to request related equipment. Proposals submitted through this joint mechanism will be reviewed and ranked according to the criteria and processes described in both FOAs. As funding permits, proposals selected for funding by both review processes will be funded. Both proposals must be successful for either to be considered.

USC may only submit one application in response to this program announcement. Your application submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please send a two page abstract via email to Richard White ( by January 14, 2012. In addition to the 2-page abstract, you should also submit a biosketch for the PI.

NSF indicates that a pre-application is due on January 28, 2013 and a full application is due by June 12, 2013. For more information:
