3rd Solicitation and Call for Concept Papers (AFC316)

The third in a series of single investigator solicitations, in which project funding is provided to a qualified entity to conduct research addressing the root causes of disease, injuries, and fatalities in the mining industry and, where possible, to achieve successful implementation of practical solutions derived from the research effort, is currently open.

Approximately $4 million is committed to this solicitation.  It is expected that as many as 8 qualified projects will be funded.

Typical projects will be of two‐year duration, although longer-term or shorter-term projects may be considered with appropriate justification due to the research effort and scope of the problem area.
