Department of Energy offers grants for research instruments

STANFORD -- The U.S. Department of Energy is offering grants to support long-range, energy-related research by funding state-of-the-art instrumentation costing $100,000 or more. Universities have until Dec. 6 to submit a maximum of four proposals.

Stanford Vice Provost and Dean of Research Charles Kruger has invited all interested researchers to meet and organize Stanford's response to this federal opportunity. The meeting will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, Nov. 1, in the Hartley Conference Center, Mitchell Earth Sciences Building.

One purpose of the meeting will be to identify possible collaborative arrangements to maximize the number of faculty who may be able to participate. Val Mallace of the Sponsored Projects Office can provide a list of researchers with Department of Energy- funded projects.

For 1994, DOE will accept proposals only in six major research areas: biological and environmental science; chemical science; energy efficiency and renewable energy; engineering; materials science; and mechanistic plant and microbial research. To apply for funds in any research category, Stanford must have had at least $150,000 of DOE-funded research projects in that field between Oct. 1, 1991, and Sept. 30, 1993. There must be a direct relationship between the instrumentation request and a peer- reviewed DOE-sponsored research project in the chosen category.
