The National Science Foundation (NSF) has released Program Solicitation
NSF 13-528, entitled "EarthCube: Developing a Community-Driven Data and
Knowledge Environment for the Geosciences." The full solicitation can be
found by clicking on the '13-529' link at:
http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=504780.

EarthCube is a community-driven activity sponsored through a partnership
between the NSF Directorate of Geosciences and Office of
Cyberinfrastructure to transform the conduct of geosciences research and
education. EarthCube aims to create a well-connected and facile
environment to share data and knowledge in an open, transparent, and
inclusive manner, thus accelerating the ability of the geosciences
community to understand and predict the earth system.

Achieving EarthCube will require a long-term dialog between the NSF and
the interested scientific communities to develop cyberinfrastructure
that is thoughtfully and systematically built to meet the current and
future requirements of geoscientists. New avenues will be supported to
gather community requirements and priorities for the elements of
EarthCube, and to capture the best technologies to meet the current and
future needs of the broad and diverse geoscience community. The
EarthCube portfolio will consist of interconnected projects and
activities that engage the geoscience, cyberinfrastructure, computer
science, and associated communities. The portfolio of activities and
funding opportunities will evolve over time depending on the status of
the EarthCube effort and the scientific and cultural needs of the
geosciences community.

This umbrella solicitation for EarthCube allows funding opportunities to
be flexible and responsive to emerging community needs and collaborative
processes. The EarthCube vision and goals do not change over time, and
this section of the solicitation will remain constant. Funding
opportunities to develop elements of the EarthCube environment will be
described in Amendments to this solicitation. Amendments will appear in
the Program Description Section of the solicitation and will include
details on the parameters, scope, conditions, and requirements of the
proposal call. Researchers who receive alerts related to solicitation
releases will receive notification when the EarthCube solicitation is
updated with an Amendment.

Full proposal deadline dates:
Test Enterprise Governance - Tuesday, 26 March 2013
Research Coordination Networks - Tuesday, 26 March 2013
Building Blocks - Wednesday, 22 May 2013
