Grants to USA multidisciplinary scientific research teams for collaborative research projects on specific topics related to earth sciences. Applicants must submit a preproposal prior to submitting a full application. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete.

This FOA invites new research applications for the SciDAC-5 Partnerships in Earth System Model Development that enable or accelerate scientific discovery employing deep, necessary, and productive collaborations between earth-system scientists on the one hand and applied mathematicians and computer scientists on the other, that overcome the barriers between these disciplines and consequently fully exploit the capabilities of DOE high-performance computing (HPC) in order to accelerate and enhance the DOE’s Energy Exascale Earth System Model (E3SM) development, supported by the Earth System Model Development Program Area (ESMD) of the Earth and Environmental Systems Modeling Program (EESM) within the Earth and Environmental Systems Sciences Division (EESSD) under BER. This SciDAC opportunity targets current challenges of the E3SM to improve its representations and performance of the Atlantic Meridional Ocean Circulation (AMOC), the Antarctic ice sheet, marine biogeochemistry, and quasi-biennial oscillation (QBO), as well as improved physics and numerics to enhance coupling of the various components with high and variable resolutions of the E3SM.

Targeted Topics for the BER-ASCR SciDAC Partnerships

  • Improved representations of one of the following topics including their properties, dynamics, variability and coupling to other processes in the E3SM: the Atlantic Meridional Ocean Circulation (AMOC); the Antarctic icesheet; marine biogeochemistry; and the quasi-biennial oscillation (QBO).
  • Improved physics and numerics to enhance coupling of the various components with high and variable resolutions of the E3SM.

For further details on the targeted topics, see pp. 7-10 of the FOA in Attached Files below.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

All types of domestic applicants are eligible to apply, except nonprofit organizations described in section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 that engaged in lobbying activities after December 31, 1995.

Federally affiliated entities must adhere to the eligibility standards below:

1. DOE/NNSA National Laboratories
DOE/NNSA National Laboratories are eligible to submit applications under this FOA and may be proposed as subrecipients under another organization’s application. If recommended for funding as a lead applicant, funding will be provided through the DOE Field-Work Proposal System and work will be conducted under the laboratory’s contract with DOE. No administrative provisions of this FOA will apply to the laboratory or any laboratory subcontractor. If recommended for funding as a proposed subrecipient, the value of the proposed subaward will be removed from the prime applicant’s award and will be provided to the laboratory through the DOE Field-Work Proposal System and work will be conducted under the laboratory’s contract with DOE.

2. Non-DOE/NNSA FFRDCs
Non-DOE/NNSA FFRDCs are not eligible to submit applications under this FOA but may be proposed as subrecipients under another organization’s application. If recommended for funding as a proposed subrecipient, the value of the proposed subaward may be removed from the prime applicant’s award and may be provided through an interagency agreement to the FFRDC’s sponsoring Federal Agency.

3. Other Federal Agencies
Other Federal Agencies are not eligible to submit applications under this FOA but may be proposed as subrecipients under another organization’s application. If recommended for funding as a proposed subrecipient, the value of the proposed subaward may be removed from the prime applicant’s award and may be provided through an interagency agreement.

An individual may only be named as the lead PI on one submission. Individual senior investigators are strongly encouraged not to participate on more than two submissions.

This FOA does not support an applicant’s commercial activity. This FOA seeks to support basic research to advance understanding rather than to address commercial opportunities. Applications that propose research related to current commercial activity or current customer needs may be declined without merit review. All for-profit applicants must include a description, not to exceed 200 words, of how their proposed work will advance scientific understanding of a basic and fundamental nature as an appendix to the research narrative.

Applications that are submitted by applicants that have not submitted a required pre-application may be declined without further review.

Pre-Application Information:

Timeline:
- Submission Deadline for Pre-Applications: January 13, 2022 at 5:00 PM Eastern Time. A Pre-Application is required
- Pre-Application Response Date: February 3, 2022
- Submission Deadline for Applications: April 11, 2022 5:00 PM Eastern Time

It is anticipated that the award selection will be completed by June 2022. It is expected that awards will be made in Fiscal Year 2022.

The PI and anyone submitting on behalf of the PI must register for an account in PAMS before it will be possible to submit a pre-application. You are encouraged to register for an account in PAMS at least a week in advance of the preproposal submission deadline so that there will be no delays with your submission.

Applications in response to this FOA must be submitted through Grants.gov. Organizations must have a Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) Number, active System for Award Management (SAM) registration, and Grants.gov account to apply for grants. Creating a Grants.gov account can be completed online in minutes, but DUNS and SAM registrations may take several weeks. Therefore, an organization’s registration should be done in sufficient time to ensure it does not impact the entity’s ability to meet required application submission deadlines.
