Revision Strongly Encourages Interdisciplinary Research Proposals
Thursday August 15, 2019
The new Antarctic Research solicitation (NSF 19-595) has been revised to encourage disciplinary research in addition to research that crosses, and integrates, disciplinary perspectives and approaches in the Antarctic and Southern Ocean. The goal of this change is to remove perceived barriers for submission of research that crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries while ensuring continued support for core research themes.
