Computational neuroscience provides a theoretical foundation and a rich set of technical approaches for understanding complex neurobiological systems, building on the theory, methods, and findings of computer science, neuroscience, and numerous other disciplines.
Through the CRCNS program, the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF), the French National Research Agency (Agence Nationale de la Recherche, ANR), the United States-Israel Binational Science Foundation (BSF), Japan’s National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT), and the State Research Agency (Agencia Estatal de Investigación, AEI) and National Institute of Health Carlos III (Instituto de Salud Carlos III, ISCIII), both of Spain, support collaborative activities that will advance the understanding of nervous system structure and function, mechanisms underlying nervous system disorders, and computational strategies used by the nervous system.
Two classes of proposals will be considered in response to this solicitation:
Research Proposals describing collaborative research projects, and
Data Sharing Proposals to enable sharing of data and other resources.
The National Institute of Health Carlos III (ISCIII) will consider US-Spanish Research Proposals and US-Spanish Data Sharing Proposals submitted to NSF in response to this solicitation. ISCIII will finance projects of maximum durations of three years.
In response to this solicitation, an investigator may participate as PI or Co-PI in no more than one proposal involving Spain (AEI/ISCIII) per review cycle. The modalities of participation of the Spanish applicants are presented in the annex to this solicitation available on the ISCIII website (https://sede.isciii.gob.es). ISCIII strongly encourages the signature of a consortium agreement covering financial and intellectual property issues as well as the management and delivery of scientific project activities. Resulting scientific data not subject to intellectual property rights must comply with FAIR principles (http://doi.org/10.1038/sdata.2016.18) as stated in the current AES annual call (https://sede.isciii.gob.es).
A proposal with the same project description as the proposal to NSF must be submitted by the Spanish PI to ISCIII. A notification of submission should be sent to the ISCIII program contacts below within seven calendar days after the deadline for proposal submission to NSF. For further instructions, applicants are urged to contact ISCIII (Mondays-Thursdays 10:00-16:00 CET and Fridays 10:00-14:00 CET). For advice on applications, questions should be directed to:
