NSF invites applications for the 2015 Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) program, intended to fund the development or acquisition of major state-of-the-art instrumentation for research or research training in any NSF-supported field.
Proposal budgets may include requests from NSF in the range of $100,000 to $4 million for both acquisition and development applications, with 30% cost-sharing from another source of funding. Proposers may request an award period up to three years for acquisition proposals and up to five years for development proposals.
The UF Office of Research is inviting internal pre-proposals for the MRI program to begin the internal selection process. College-approved MRI pre-proposals are due to the Office of Research by 5 p.m. October 29, 2014.
