Special Large Project Competition

In addition to the above projects, IGPP is soliciting proposals for a single project in one of the focus areas for up to $100K for particularly innovative research. Examples of such needs are:

  • Concentration of effort on a specific topic that needs rapid advance
    • IGPP has special interest in projects that span two or more of the focus areas, e.g. space science or geoscience coupled with global climate impacts
  • A multi-campus/laboratory project
  • An important project requiring salary for Laboratory PI
  • A project requiring specific funds for laboratory apparatus, field trips, etc.

The intent is for IGPP to support a single project whose results would be of considerable interest to the community at large and to the Laboratory, and could only be completed with increased funding. The project would be supported for up to three years (assuming adequate yearly progress and available IGPP funding). Interested investigators should directly contact the IGPP Director for additional information and assistance.
