This looks like an opportunity for network research. --Alvin Wolfe
Subject: Immediate call by NSF for SGER Proposals for research in fields
of science, engineering and education.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is requesting immediate submission
of proposals for Small Grants for Exploratory Research (SGER) regarding
the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The SGER program is designed to
allow investigators to write brief proposals for funding up to $200,000
for 1 to 2 years; promising a very short turn-around time to address
research topics that are relevant to the victims of Hurricane Katrina
(attachment contains further information).
This call is being sponsored by the Human and Social Dynamics
Initiative, which is a cross-cutting initiative. Its primary
The Human and Social Dynamics (HSD) priority area fosters breakthroughs
in understanding the dynamics of human action and development, as well
as knowledge about organizational, cultural, and societal adaptation and
change. HSD aims to increase our collective ability to (1) anticipate
the complex consequences of change; (2) understand the dynamics of human
and social behavior at all levels, including that of the human mind; (3)
understand the cognitive and social structures that create, define, and
result from change; and (4) manage profound or rapid change, and make
decisions in the face of changing risks and uncertainty. Accomplishing
these goals requires multidisciplinary research teams and comprehensive,
interdisciplinary approaches across the sciences, engineering,
education, and humanities, as appropriate.
If you have questions regarding this call for proposals please contact
your NSF program officer immediately.
