DOD Funding Available for Environmental R&D
The Department of Defense (DOD), through the Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP), will be funding environmental research and development in five core thrust areas: Cleanup, compliance, conservation, pollution prevention, and unexploded ordnance.
The objective of this effort is to identify, develop, and transition environmental technologies that relate directly to defense mission accomplishment. SERDP intends to fund multiple projects within each core thrust area. Projects will be selected through a competitive selection process.
Pre-proposals for the non-federal sector are due by Jan. 6, 2005. Proposals for the federal sector are due by March 10, 2005.
Detailed instructions for federal and private sector proposers are available on the SERDP website at www.serdp.org/funding/funding.html.
SERDP will also be funding environmental research and development through the SERDP Exploratory Development (SEED) program. The SEED program is designed to provide initial funding for high-risk, high-payoff projects in all five core thrust areas.
For FY06, SEED is focusing on compliance and conservation. All SEED pre-proposals are due by March 10, 2005. Detailed instructions for both federal and non-federal proposers are available on the SERDP website at www.serdp.org/funding/funding.html.
