The Department of Defense’s (DoD) Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) is seeking to fund environmental research and development proposals. SERDP is DoD’s environmental science and technology program, planned and executed in partnership with the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency, with participation by numerous other Federal and non-Federal organizations. The Program invests across the broad spectrum of basic and applied research, as well as advanced development.
Proposals responding to focused Statements of Need (SONs) in the following areas are requested:
- Environmental Restoration — Research and technologies for the characterization, risk assessment, remediation, and management of contaminants in soil, sediments, and water.
- Resource Conservation and Resiliency — Research that advances DoD’s management of its installation infrastructure in a sustainable way.
- Weapons Systems and Platforms — Research and technologies to reduce, control, and understand the sources of waste and emissions in the manufacturing, maintenance, and use of weapons systems and platforms.
Proposals responding to the Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 SONs will be selected through a competitive process. Separate solicitations are available to Federal and non-Federal proposers. All proposals are due to SERDP by October 19, 2017 by 2:00 p.m. ET. The SONs and detailed instructions are available on the SERDP website.
