Description: The primary objective of this FOA is to stimulate innovative Convergent Neuroscience (CN) approaches to establish causal and/or probabilistic linkages across contiguous levels of analysis (e.g., gene, molecule, cell, circuit, system, behavior) in an explanatory model of psychopathology. In particular, applicants should focus on how specific constituent biological processes at one level of analysis contribute to quantifiable properties at other levels, either directly or as emergent phenomena. Although not required, it is preferable that applications link at least three levels of analysis and include an emphasis on genetics. The projects under this FOA will develop novel methods, theories, and approaches through a CN team framework, bringing together highly synergistic inter/transdisciplinary teams from neuroscience and the orthogonal fields of the physical sciences (e.g., data/computational science, physics, engineering, mathematics). Successful teams will combine, expand upon, or develop conceptual frameworks and theoretical approaches, and build explanatory computational models that connect contiguous levels of analysis. Such frameworks, theories, and computational explanatory models should be validated through experimental approaches to elucidate biological underpinnings of complex behavioral (including cognitive and affective) outcomes in psychopathology. Additionally, a goal of this program is to advance research in CN by creating a shared community framework of resources which may be used by the broader research community to further research, as such, a successful team will be expected to have a robust plan for sharing data and other resources.

Description: A new, more accurate and precise way to measure open-water evaporation is needed, especially as the demand for water increases as the supply decreases (Phillips and others, 2013), impacting water amounts ranchers, farmers, cities, and environmental restoration efforts receive. The goal of this project is to finalize the design, test, and validate a new open-water evaporation method. This proposed research strives to produce a more accurate method for measuring evaporation on reservoirs and lakes with the accuracy of this new method being validated with a hemispherical evaporation chamber. More specifically, the goal of this research is to finalize the design of and deploy and test a floating evaporation pan, and then compare the evaporation results to more common and established methods like the Class A evaporation pan, energy-budget equations, and bulk-aerodynamic equations. This will be accomplished by completing the following three research objectives. • Finalize the design of a semi-submerged Floating Evaporation Pan (FEP) that will have an adjustable freeboard and a protective wave guard, and then test the design at Cochiti Lake. • Assess the accuracy of the FEP with a hemispherical evaporation chamber while deployed Cochiti Lake for one year and calculate evaporation with various equations using micrometeorological instrumentations attached to the FEP. • Compute and compare the volume of water evaporated on a monthly time step for the FEP, a nearby Class A evaporation pan, and common energy-budget-, temperature-, and aerodynamic-based equations over a year-long period. The completion of these objectives will determine the reliability, accuracy, precision, and improvement over current methods for the proposed technology.

Description: The program aims to increase the productivity, competitiveness and sustainability in selected value chains and areas of the agribusiness sector to boost agro-food exports – thereby creating employment opportunities. This can be achieved by creating hubs for learning, knowledge sharing about international standards, and for capacity building leveraging the research expertise within the private sector that would potentially bridge gaps between innovation and product marketing. This NOFO is aligned with the U.S. 2017 Assistance Priorities for Tunisia as well as the 2015-2017 Integrated Country Strategy goal of spurring sustainable economic growth through increasing private investment and bilateral trade. In order to support the democratic consolidation in Tunisia, the United States government has designed a number of successful programs spurring sustainable economic growth, championing good governance, and countering terrorism and violent extremism in the country. The recipient shall coordinate with other USG partners in the economic growth sector. A list of the projects will be provided before the start of the program. The recipient is also encouraged to partner with the Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, the private sector, universities, and NGOs to achieve an overall upgrade of the sector. Tunisia remains heavily dependent on the international community for continued financial and technical assistance. The World Bank, the African Development Bank and the European Union (EU) all support sectorial approaches to reform. The recipient is expected to coordinate with the international donor community in supporting Tunisia in the agriculture sector.

Description: The Research and Development program supports projects that address major challenges in preserving or providing access to humanities collections and resources. These challenges include the need to find better ways to preserve materials of critical importance to the nation’s cultural heritage—from fragile artifacts and manuscripts to analog recordings and digital assets subject to technological obsolescence—and to develop advanced modes of organizing, searching, discovering, and using such materials. This program recognizes that finding solutions to complex problems often requires forming interdisciplinary project teams, bringing together participants with expertise in the humanities; in preservation; and in information, computer, and natural science. All projects must demonstrate how advances in preservation and access would benefit the cultural heritage community in supporting humanities research, teaching, or public programming.
