The NSF has announced that it is accepting applications to its new Interdisciplinary Behavioral and Social Science Research program.
The Interdisciplinary Behavioral and Social Science Research (IBSS) competition seeks to support research conducted by behavioral and social scientists as collaborating members of teams that come from multiple disciplines, who engage in integrated research that employs methods and techniques from multiple disciplines, and whose results are likely to enhance theories and/or methodological approaches or have other stimulating and/or catalytic impact across a range of disciplinary fields.
The IBSS competition invites proposals for two different kinds of projects:
1. IBSS Large Interdisciplinary Research Projects – Large interdisciplinary projects may be supported by awards as large as $1,000,000.
2. IBSS Interdisciplinary Team Exploratory Projects – Exploratory research by emerging multidisciplinary teams may be supported by awards as large as $250,000.
