This program seeks to improve the quality and expand the scope of research and research training in science and engineering, and to foster the integration of research and education by providing instrumentation for research-intensive learning environments. The MRI program encourages the development and acquisition of research instrumentation for shared use across academic departments, among research institutions, and in concert with private sector partners. The MRI program assists in the acquisition or development of major research instrumentation by U.S. institutions that is, in general, too costly for support through other NSF programs. The maintenance and technical support associated with these instruments is also supported. Proposals may be for a single instrument, a large system of instruments, or multiple instruments that share a common or specific research focus. An institution may submit up to three proposals to the MRI program. An institution may submit up to three proposals. NSF requires cost sharing equal to 30% of the total project costs (NOT of the NSF share). Eligible Project Costs • Eligible project costs are those total project costs (comprising the NSF award plus the institution's cost sharing, if required) that are properly and reasonably allocable to the research instrumentation based on the percentage of time that it is used for research and research training. For instrument acquisition proposals, eligible project costs include costs of instrument purchase, installation, commissioning, and calibration. The direct and indirect costs of operation, maintenance, and other appropriate technical support during the award period are also eligible. For instrument development proposals, eligible project costs include all of the items listed above, as well as the direct and indirect costs associated with support for personnel engaged in the instrument development effort. Direct and indirect costs associated with research projects to be conducted using the requested instrumentation (including researchers' salary and students' stipends) are not eligible costs under the MRI program. Requirements • Name or type of the instrumentation to be acquired or developed • Name of the PI • Names and Departments of the prospective Co-I’s or principal users • Description of the importance of the proposed instrumentation to current or future research programs • Expected source of cost sharing (cost sharing at a level of 30% of total eligible project costs is required) ORS Limited Opportunities Bulletin 11/11/2010 Page 4 of 5
