The tools created by Research Development staff to assist you with preparing your National Science Foundation (NSF) proposals have been updated, as appropriate, to incorporate the new instructions and formats that apply to proposals due or submitted on January 29, 2018 and thereafter (Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG), NSF 18-1).
Now available along with other resources in RD’s NSF Proposal Development Tools folder in the Scholars’ Repository (http://scholars.unh.edu/nsf/):
Beginning in April 2018, proposers to NSF will be able to prepare and submit non-collaborative research proposals in Research.gov.
The initial release of this new capability will run in parallel with existing FastLane proposal preparation and submission capabilities, so proposers can choose to prepare and submit noncollaborative research proposals in Research.gov or in FastLane. Separately submitted collaborative proposals must still be submitted
This coming spring, NSF will make major changes to the way the research community maintains account and user profile information in FastLane and Research.gov.
Currently, Principal Investigators (PIs), Research Administrators, Reviewers, and Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) applicants have separate user logins, with user profile information being maintained in multiple locations in NSF’s systems. In addition, users must request roles for NSF systems from their organizations’ administrators, with no ability for users to selfmanage their personal profile data.
The UNH Office of Environmental Health and Safety (OEHS) has been rewarded for its development of an online chemical and environmental management inventory database system that keeps track of all chemicals — everything from Windex to highly toxic and explosive chemicals — on the campus.
OEHS received the Innovation Award of Merit from the national Campus Safety, Health and Environmental Management Association for UNHCEMS® (UNH Chemical Environmental Management System), developed by OEHS and the Research Computing Center.
For nearly 70 years, American academics, administrators, and other professionals have taught and conducted research abroad through the Fulbright Scholar Program. UNH has been well-represented among those scholars. Now, new opportunities and more flexibility have made the Fulbright programs more accessible than ever.
MTA (Material Transfer Agreement;/research/material-transfer-agreements-mtas): MTAs govern the exchange of research tools between colleagues at different universities, institutions, or companies. Research is frequently a collaborative effort with colleagues from multiple geographically-diverse institutions sharing tools and techniques. An MTA is a formal contract that defines proper use and designates specific limitations or obligations for using these tools. Shared tool
This year, the University Instrumentation Center (UIC) started a new tradition with the creation of our first annual calendar. The calendar features images obtained using instrumentation available through the UIC and within the university, and all images were created by UNH faculty, staff or students.
