为我们最紧迫的环境和可持续发展挑战创造有效的解决方案需要富有想象力的思考 - 当研究人员从不同的领域,专业知识或观点完全沉浸在努力实现共同目标时,这就是演变的那种。在他们的报告中“21世纪环境工程:解决大挑战”的国家科学,工程和医学(NASEM)学院,确定了五个关键挑战,我们必须作为一个社会解决:可持续供应食品,水和能源遏制气候改变并适应其影响设计未来没有污染和浪费创造有效,健康和弹性的城市培养知情的决定和行动的报告进一步国家,“挑战为不断变化的环境工程教育,研究和对增加贡献提供了焦点更大的影响。实施这一新模式将需要修改教育课程和创造性方法,促进对复杂的社会和环境问题的跨学科研究。“本招责将支持使用融合研究模式解决这些大挑战的项目,这些模拟模型与可持续性和环境工程领域的化学工艺,运输和生物科学和工程领域无缝地整合基本知识和专业知识。在NSF网站 - 融合报告和参考文献中可以找到对汇聚研究概念和模型的简要介绍。因此,化学,生物工程,环境和运输系统(ECO-CBET)征集中的环境趋同机会将支持基本的研究活动,通过发展基础知识基础流程和机制,使得创新新的创新的机制来支持烦恼的环境工程和可持续性问题。材料,过程和系统是可能的。项目应令人信服,反映高度跨学科研究团队的持续,协调努力。征集的一个关键目标是鼓励对话和紧密综合合作,其中化学过程系统,运输现象和生物工程社区与环境工程和可持续发展专家参与引发创新,并达到意外的解决方案。 Furthermore, training the future workforce to successfully engage in discipline-transcending research will support continued innovation toward surmounting the complex environmental and sustainability challenges facing our global community. Process science and engineering, in the context of this solicitation, is broadly defined to include all programmatic interests of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Directorate for Engineering's (ENG) Division of Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental, and Transport Systems (CBET). These interests are outlined in the "core" program descriptions: Chemical Process Systems (CPS) Cluster · Catalysis · Electrochemical Systems · Interfacial Engineering · Process Systems, Reaction Engineering, and Molecular Thermodynamics Engineering Biology and Health (EBH) Cluster · - Biophotonics · - Biosensing · - Cellular and Biochemical Engineering · - Disability and Rehabilitation Engineering · - Engineering of Biomedical Systems Environmental Engineering and Sustainability (EES) Cluster · - Environmental Engineering · - Environmental Sustainability · - Nanoscale Interactions Transport Phenomena (TP) Cluster · - Combustion and Fire Systems · - Fluid Dynamics · - Particulate and Multiphase Processes · - Thermal Transport Processes Teams should be constructed such that expertise is both complementary and distinct, drawing inspiration from the CBET-supported research communities (see above programmatic clusters). Creative collaborations between research communities that do not typically intersect are highly encouraged. At least three named investigators must be identified, each of whom must possess a unique perspective or skillset that motivates the proposed approach(es). Teams may also wish to consider, as appropriate, including individuals with expertise such as manufacturing, other sciences, especially social, behavioral, and economic sciences, or otherwise to extend the impact of the work. While this solicitation is not restricted to a specific environmental engineering and sustainability research topic, the current solicitation emphasizes research topics related to: 1) greenhouse gas mitigation, 2) managing the nitrogen cycle, and 3) sustainable water purification and resource recovery systems. Assuming sufficient funding is provided in the NSF budget, it is anticipated this competition will continue annually. Research topic priorities are subject to change in subsequent years. Awards are expected to range from $1,500,000 to $1,700,000 over four years. Budgets should be commensurate with the scope of the proposed research. Pending the availability of funds, awards have the potential to be renewed once for a total of eight years of support. Renewal of awards will be subject to a competitive merit review process.
