Solicitation Release Date: 01 October 2013
The Keck Institute for Space Studies (KISS) is soliciting proposals for Study Programs to be carried out during the 2014 calendar year. We intend to select and support 4-5 Study Programs for the 2014 calendar year. Download full details.
Study program proposals are solicited in the areas of space engineering, planetary science, remote sensing and earth system science, astrobiology, and astronomy and physics from space.
The goal of the Keck Institute is to develop ideas and concepts that have the potential to revolutionize future space missions. The Institute will do this by convening study programs and workshops that bring together the best engineers and scientists from JPL and Campus along with leading scientists and engineers from the external research community.
The Keck Institute is looking for approaches that would not happen without KISS sponsorship. We are looking for technically oriented studies that significantly advance a field. Proposals for incremental advances will not be funded. We are interested in bringing people together in new ways on in-depth collaborations that will pursue new scientific and technical directions.
