Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience

Computational neuroscience provides a theoretical foundation and a rich set of technical approaches for understanding complex neurobiological systems, building on the theory, methods, and findings of computer science, neuroscience, and numerous other disciplines.

Through the CRCNS program,

the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF), the French National Research Agency (Agence Nationale de la Recherche, ANR), the United States-Israel Binational Science Foundation (BSF), and Japan’s National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) 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.<a id="_anchor_1" name="_msoanchor_1" href=""></a> Two classes of proposals will be considered in response to this solicitation:
Research Proposals<span class="apple-converted-space"> </span>describing collaborative research projects, and Data Sharing Proposals<span class="apple-converted-space"> </span>to enable sharing of data and other resources.

Domestic and international projects will be considered.

As detailed in the solicitation, international components of collaborative projects may be funded in parallel by the participating agencies.

Specific CRCNS opportunities for parallel funding are available for bilateral US-German Research Proposals, US-German Data Sharing Proposals, US-French Research Proposals, US-French Data Sharing Proposals, US-Israeli Research Proposals, US-Israeli Data Sharing Proposals, US-Japanese Research Proposals, US-Japanese Data Sharing Proposals, and multilateral proposals involving the United States and two or more partnering countries (Germany, France, Israel, and/or Japan; <span>please see Section VIII of the solicitation for country-specific instructions and limitations</span>).

Appropriate scientific areas of investigations may be related to the interests of any of the participating funding organizations.

Questions concerning a particular project's focus, direction, and relevance to a participating funding organization should be addressed to the appropriate person in the list of agency contacts found in Section VIII of the solicitation.

NSF will coordinate and manage the review of proposals jointly with participating domestic and foreign funding organizations, through a joint panel review process used by all participating funders.<span class="apple-converted-space"> </span>Additional information is available in Section VI of the solicitation.

NSF Publication 18-501

Additional Information of Eligibility:
Planning and Implementation Grant Eligibility: Eligible schools, state and local agencies, Indian tribal organizations, small- and medium-sized agricultural producers or groups of small- and medium-sized agricultural producers, and non-profit entities are eligible to receive planning and implementation grants.

Eligible schools are defined as pre-K-12 School Food Authorities (SFAs), non-profit private schools, charter schools, Indian tribal schools, and others that participate in the National School Lunch or Breakfast Programs.

Eligible SFAs may apply for funding that spans the entire SFA, for a specific group of schools (e.g.

only K-5 schools within an SFA), or for an individual school.

In the case where an SFA exists, the application must come from the SFA, and only one application per SFA is allowed.

Funding is available to support school-based programs only.

If a proposal seeks to increase local foods in the Child and Adult Care Program or the Summer Food Service Program, target sites must be located at a school.

Training Grant Eligibility: Only state and local agencies, Indian Tribal Organizations, small- and medium-sized agricultural producers or groups of small- and medium-sized agricultural producers, and non-profit entities are eligible to receive training grant funds.

Training grants may support projects that impact CACFP and SFSP operators that have sites beyond schools.
