US Nuclear Regulatory Commission Research Conference Grant and Cooperative Agreement Program

The U. S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) was created as an independent agency by Congress in 1974 to enable the nation to safely use radioactive materials for beneficial civilian purposes while ensuring that people and the environment are protected.

The NRC regulates the nation's civilian


use of byproduct, source, and special nuclear materials to ensure adequate protection of public health and safety, to promote the common defense and security, and to protect the environment.

The NRC’s Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research (RES) furthers the agency’s regulatory mission by providing technical advice, technical tools and information for identifying and resolving safety issues, making regulatory decisions, and promulgating regulations and guidance.

RES is comprised of three technical divisions and one administrative division, each with it own responsibilities and program goals.

Functional descriptions of each division can be found at awards support a discrete, specified, circumscribed project to be performed by named Project Directors/Principal Investigators (PDs/PIs) in areas representing the investigators’ specific interests and competencies, based on the mission of the NRC.

Proposals to support high quality conferences/scientific meetings that are relevant to the NRC’s mission and to the public health will be accepted.

Although the PDs/PIs write the grant application and are responsible for conducting and supervising the activities, the actual applicant is the research institution/organization.

Submitted applications are assigned to the appropriate division with expertise in the subject area.

This FOA allows the PDs/PIs to define the scientific focus or objective of the research based on particular areas of interest and competence.

Prior year RES awards include topics such as prevention and control of contaminants in fractured porous media, nuclear plant instrumentation control and human-machine interface, and structural mechanics in reactor technology.
