The Office of Fusion Energy Sciences (FES) of the Office of Science (SC), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), hereby announces its interest in receiving grant applications for theoretical and computational research relevant to the U.S. magnetic fusion energy sciences program. All individuals or research groups planning to submit applications for new or renewal funding in Fiscal Year 2013 should submit in response to this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). The specific areas of interest are:
1. Macroscopic Stability
2. Confinement and Transport
3. Boundary Physics
4. Plasma Heating & Non-inductive Current Drive, and
5. Energetic Particles
Due to the limited availability of funds, Principal Investigators with continuing theory grants may not submit a new application in the same topical area(s) as their existing grant(s). An applicant may submit only one application in response to this FOA, but applications can target multiple topical areas.
The full text of the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is located on FedConnect. Instructions for completing the Grant Application Package are contained in the full text of the FOA which can be obtained at: https://www.fedconnect.net/FedConnect/?doc=DE-FOA-0000707&agency=DOE
