We invite you to participate in an information session to introduce new opportunities for UCSD researchers through the UCSD/LANL Cooperative Agreement on Research and Education (CARE) Program. Each session will outline the CARE program, highlight the possible research areas, and describe the proposal application process and deadlines.
The CARE program seeks to produce high quality, collaborative, basic research on topics that are strategically important to both UCSD and Los Alamos. In addition, this program will serve to advance the education of undergraduates, graduates, and postdocs by providing a dual-mentoring environment. CARE projects will act as "seed efforts" to establish larger collaborative projects that may in turn be funded by multiple federal agencies.
The program anticipates funding approximately six projects at a level of $120K per year for two years.
The UCSD/LANL CARE committee has selected the following three general research areas for the initial funding cycle and we provide here, examples of specific topics that have been identified by LANL investigators for possible joint collaborations. Faculty with potential topics for collaborative research, not specifically listed but related to the three general headings are also encouraged to attend and to apply.
Sensors and Networks;
Information and Data;
Simulation of complex systems;
Please join us to learn more about this important new research and education program. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Marianne Generales (firstname.lastname@example.org, x44636).
