DOE-NE has released the FY 2018 Consolidated Innovative Nuclear Research (CINR) Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). The FOA contains workscopes for NEUP, NEET, and NSUF research areas.  Changes to the FY 2018 CINR FOA include:

  • Two new workscopes for R&D
  • No IRP workscope
  • PI?s are only eligible to compete as many applications as they may have with existing eligibility requirements 
  • All NSUF applications require the NSUF Access Request (a combination of the LOI and pre-app)
  • NSUF-2 will be out of phase (delayed) with respect to the rest of the FY 2018 CINR process
  • FY 2018 projects are scheduled to begin on Oct 1, 2018

Note: The NSUF Access Requests (required for NSUF-1, NEAMS-2, and NSUF-2) are due on an aggressive timeline, so PIs who are submitting in these areas are encouraged to engage with NSUF staff to complete their applications as soon as possible.
