NSF ECR FY14 Webinar Series
The National Science Foundation Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR) will host webinars to inform researchers about opportunities to submit proposals to the EHR Core Research (ECR) program announcement (NSF 13-555). ECR seeks proposals that will help synthesize, build and/or expand research foundations in the following core areas: STEM learning, STEM learning environments, workforce development, and broadening participation in STEM. The ECR program invites researchers to identify and conduct research on questions or issues in order to advance the improvement of STEM learning in general, or to address specific challenges of great importance. Two types of proposals are invited: Core Research Proposals (maximum 5 years, $1.5 million) that propose to study a foundational research question/issue designed to inform the transformation of STEM learning and education and Capacity Building Proposals (maximum 3 years, $300,000) intended to support groundwork necessary for advancing research within the four core areas. ECR program officers will discuss ECR, outline the elements of ECR proposals, and answer commonly asked questions. (The content of all four webinars will be the same; there is no need to attend more than one webinar.) The webinars will be held: December 4, 2013, 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Eastern December 11, 2013, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Eastern December 13, 2013, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Eastern December 18, 2013 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Eastern For more information about the webinars, and instructions for joining, please visit the ECR FY14 Webinar Series web page.
