The Office of High Energy Physics (HEP) at the U. S. Department of Energy, Office of Science, hereby invites new grant applications for support of innovative research in neutrino physics.
We are interested in research that would align with the goals of the Intensity Frontier Program (http://science.energy.gov/hep/research/intensity-frontier/)
in investigating the properties and interactions of the known neutrinos and in searching for new types of neutrinos, as part of our implementation of the strategic plan for the HEP program (http://science.energy.gov/~/media/hep/hepap/pdf/May%202014/FINAL_P5_Report_Interactive_06021 4. pdf).
Proposed experiments that are scientiﬁcally compelling, competitive within the world program, modest in cost and time-scale, and technically ready, will be considered.
Overall programmatic priority and optimization will be evaluated using the criteria spelled out in the HEP strategic plan.
In exceptionally strong cases, directed R&D work in support of technology needed for larger scale future neutrino experiments, and theoretical studies that can address some systematic limitations of these experiments may also be considered.
Priority will be given to those efforts that can provide publishable results within a five-year time frame.
