Scope: Grants awarded under this program are intended to improve research capability through the support of a group of scientists and engineers, including graduate students and post-doctoral fellows, working on a common scientific theme in one or more EPSCoR jurisdictions. The objectives of the DOE EPSCoR Implementation Grants are to: – Jumpstart capability development in the jurisdiction(s) through increased human and technical resources. – Support a group of researchers working on a common scientific theme, with mutually supporting goals and objectives. – When topically relevant to the subject matter of the application, promote collaborations with other institutions of higher education and industry with strong participation by students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty from EPSCoR eligible institutions. These collaborations may include institutions from other EPSCoR jurisdictions. Collaborations involving more than one institution or more than one EPSCoR jurisdiction, while welcome, are not a requirement. DOE EPSCoR also encourages but does not require implementation grants to work toward building beneficial relationships between institutions in EPSCoR jurisdictions and the 10 worldclass Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs) managed by the Office of Science.
