The Macrosystems Biology and NEON-Enabled Science (MSB-NES): Research on Biological Systems at Regional to Continental Scales program will support quantitative, interdisciplinary, systems-oriented research on biosphere processes and their complex interactions with climate, land use, and changes in species distribution at regional to continental scales as well as training activities to broaden participation of researchers in Macrosystems Biology and NEON-Enabled Science.
Proposers are encouraged to use NEON resources, and proposals for substantive and innovative NEON-enabled research will be prioritized for funding. Substantive NEON-enabled projects rely on data and/or samples collected by NEON, co-locate research activities at NEON sites, and/or develop tools that will explicitly enhance the processing, use, and/or analysis of NEON data or collections within the context of Macrosystems Biology research questions.
Full proposals are due January 16, 2020 (due by 5 p.m. submitter's local time).
Given the holidays in the weeks leading up to the deadline, if you are in need of a letter of support from NEON or an estimate related to NEON Assignable Assets program, please submit your requests as soon as possible to ensure that there is sufficient time to complete the review and pricing of your request prior to internal deadlines at your institution. We request that you contact us prior to December 9, 2019 so that we can get Technical Evaluations scheduled.
