ORI Announces Grants to Fund Conferences Promoting Research Integrity

The Office of Research Integrity (ORI) seeks to support conferences to develop multidisciplinary networks to build upon existing evidence-based research and stimulate innovative approaches to preventing research misconduct and promoting research integrity. ORI is especially interested in supporting conferences that lead to extramural grant applications on research on research integrity and peer-reviewed publications. This program is intended to complement and promote ORI’s core education and research activities by providing a mechanism for those concerned with research integrity to meet to discuss theoretical, empirical, research design, educational, legal, procedural, ethical, and other issues related to preventing research misconduct and addressing issues that arise after an allegation of research misconduct is brought forward at an institution. These meetings should be designed to bring together experts from diverse areas of research, education, administration, law, and government to develop new tools for education and design programs to help prevent research misconduct and promote research…

6th FPR–UCLA Interdisciplinary Conference

A Critical Moment: Sex/Gender Research at the Intersection of Culture, Brain, & Behavior October 23-24, 2015 UCLA

This conference occurs at a critical juncture in sex/gender research in neuroscience, anthropology, psychology, and related disciplines. New theories are utilizing a conception of the brain as dynamic, plastic, and adaptable, and of sex/gender brain and behavioral differences as subject to the influence of a broad range of biological, cultural, and social or environmental factors.

In organizing this conference, our aim is to bring the neuro- and social sciences together to consider three cross-cutting questions on sex/gender: Why now? what’s fixed/changing/changeable? what’s at stake?

Registration for our conference is Now Open.

EARLY Registration ENDS on June 30, 2015 • Afterwards, LATE registration, with higher registration fees.

ON-LINE REGISTRATION: ONLY FOR GENERAL PUBLIC

All others (Current Students/ University of California Faculty/ International Customers/ Conference Scholarships) must register by MAIL/FAX/IN PERSON to UCLA…

NSF Proposals for I/UCRCs in Areas Relevant to the Forensic Sciences

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) have partnered as co-sponsors to welcome proposals for establishment of Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers in areas relevant to the forensic sciences. With permission from the Principal Investigator (PI), NIJ will share in evaluation of forensics-related I/UCRC proposals, and may co-sponsor successful proposals.

The I/UCRC program develops long-term partnerships among industry, academia, and government. The centers are catalyzed by a small investment from NSF; their research is primarily funded by center members, with NSF playing a supporting role in the development and evolution of the center. These sponsorship roles can be shared by NSF and NIJ for forensics-relevant I/UCRCs, providing additional valuable perspective.

Proposals are welcome on a range of topics relevant to the forensic sciences. Examples of center foci that would be considered relevant and of interest include but are not limited to: human judgment and decision making…

Integrated NSF Support Promoting Interdisciplinary Research and Education (INSPIRE) Pilot Seeks Proposals

The Integrated NSF Support Promoting Interdisciplinary Research and Education (INSPIRE) pilot seeks to support bold interdisciplinary projects in all NSF-supported areas of science, engineering, and education research. INSPIRE has no targeted themes and serves as a funding mechanism for proposalsthat are required both to be interdisciplinary and to exhibit potentially transformative research (IDR and PTR, respectively). Complementing existing NSF efforts, INSPIRE was created to handle proposals whose:

Scientific advances lie outside the scope of a single program or discipline, such that substantial funding support from more than one program or discipline is necessary. Lines of research promise transformational advances. Prospective discoveries reside at the interfaces of disciplinary boundaries that may not be recognized through traditional review or coreview.

Proposals meeting INSPIRE criteria will be considered for funding on any NSF-supported topic and may be submitted after August 1, 2014. Awards will generally support an individual principal investigation or a small…
