Computational Neuroscience Program

Hi everyone,

Joining the U.S. National Science Foundation, National Institutes of
Health, and the German Ministry of Education and Research
(Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF), we are pleased to
announce the release of the program solicitation for Collaborative
Research in Computational Neuroscience (CRCNS; NSF 11-505), now
available at http://www.nsf.gov/crcns/.  A parallel NIH Notice and
BMBF Richtlinie are forthcoming.

The next deadline for proposals will be FEBRUARY 16, 2011.

The new solicitation extends the CRCNS program for a period of three
years (2011-2013), including what had previously been solicited under
a separate Dear Colleague Letter on German-USA Collaboration in
Computational Neuroscience (NSF 09-60).

BMBF is now a formal partner in this activity, along with NSF and NIH.
 At NIH, CRCNS is now affiliated with the NIH Blueprint for
Neuroscience Research (http://neuroscienceblueprint.nih.gov).

CRCNS will support collaborative activities that will advance the
understanding of nervous system structure and function, mechanisms
underlying nervous system disorders, and computational strategies used
by the nervous system.

Three classes of proposals will be considered in response to this solicitation:
* Research Proposals describing collaborative research projects,
* US-German Research Proposals describing international collaborative
research projects to be funded in parallel by US and German agencies,
* Data Sharing Proposals to enable sharing of data and other resources.

The new solicitation incorporates the following programmatic and
administrative changes:
* Scientific description and scope have been updated;
* Requirements for Data Sharing Proposals and US-German Research
Proposals (for international collaborative research projects to be
funded in parallel by US and German agencies) have been revised and
* A Data Management Plan is now required as a supplementary document
for all proposals;
* In response to this solicitation, an investigator may participate as
PI or Co-PI in no more than one Research Proposal per review cycle, in
no more than one US-German Research Proposal  per review cycle, and in
no more than one Data Sharing Proposal per review cycle;
* Budget limits and expected award durations have been clarified.

Please be advised that FastLane will not permit submission of a
proposal that is missing a Data Management Plan or, for proposals
requesting postdoctoral funding, a Postdoctoral Researcher Mentoring

Broad distribution of this announcement is encouraged.
