It is a pleasure to notify the PR Scientific Community about the 2014 NASA EPSCoR International Space Station (ISS) Flight Opportunity (announcement number NNH14ZHA002C).

This solicitation is for current or previously funded EPSCoR projects that are mature enough to design a research experiment or develop research experimental hardware to the point that it can safely be flown on the ISS.

Proposal Parameters:

  • All proposed projects must be mature enough to transition to a flight experiment with little or no additional NASA funding.
  • The maximum funding request per proposal is $100,000. This amount is to be expended over a three-year period.
  • There is no cost share requirement for this opportunity. As directed by NASA, the PR NASA EPSCoR Director, Dr. Gerardo Morell, will be the Managing PI of the proposal. It will be submitted via NSPIRES through the UPR Resource Center for Science and Engineering.
  • Interested research teams are invited to submit pre-proposals to the PR NASA EPSCoR office.  The pre-proposals will be used to determine the best TWO projects to be developed into full-fledged proposals.

The pre-proposals must contain the following information:

Cover Page (one page)

  • Project Title
  • Research PI: name, affiliation, contact information
  • Co-investigators: names and affiliations
  • Collaborating NASA Center(s) and point(s) of contact
