These awards support collaborations consisting of at least four UC campuses and either Los Alamos or Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory conducting research in one of three targeted areas.

Proposals in this category must focus on collaborative research and training activities in one of the following three targeted areas identified for high-impact research realized through UC-national lab synergy:

• Climate science

• Cybersecurity

• National security through social sciences

Proposal requirements, detailed in the RFP, include:

• Project leadership constituted by a Lead (Applicant) Principal Investigator from a UC campus, and a Site Lead/Co-Principal Investigator (Co-PI) from each eligible participating collaborating site.

• Research participation by a minimum of four (4) UC campuses and either LANL or LLNL. Additional collaborating sites, as defined in the RFP, are permitted.

• Interdisciplinary, multi-disciplinary and cross-disciplinary research collaboration in one of the three identified targeted research areas among UC and lab investigators with meaningful research training opportunities for UC students (graduate and undergraduate) and post-doctoral fellows from the participating UC campuses.

• Contributions by the collaborating national laboratories that directly support the research execution and outcomes of the collaboration. These may include equipment, space, access to relevant unclassified data, or personnel time that may be covered by other sources of support or directly relevant activities at the lab.

• Total funding request per application may not exceed $4 million over 3 years, including indirect costs, and excluding matching cost contributions from the labs. Additional budget restrictions are detailed in the RFP.
