Combustion and Fire Systems Program in the NSF Division of Chemical, Biological, Environmental, and Transport Systems (CBET) will accept proposals at any time beginning August 20th

Aug 01, 2017

The Combustion and Fire Systems Program in the Division of Chemical, Biological, Environmental, and Transport Systems (CBET) will, as of June 2017, eliminate target dates and accept proposals for consideration at any time.

To allow time to adapt to the "open submission - no deadline" guidelines, new proposals will be considered for review after August 20, 2017.

With this change, the Combustion and Fire Systems Program will implement new guidelines, in which a declined proposal (or reasonable facsimile of that proposal/topic by the same investigator) is ineligible for resubmission until a minimum of one year has passed from the date of its initial submission. This moratorium will allow investigators the time required to digest the results of the merit review and revise/restructure the declined proposal accordingly.

Only proposals submitted to the Combustion and Fire Systems Program in the Division of Chemical, Biological, Environmental, and Transport Systems (CBET) are affected by this change. All other submissions to other programs or other funding opportunities within the division will continue to follow the deadlines outlined in their respective solicitations and webpages.
