The Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS)
Thursday February 11, 2021 1:00pm

The purpose of this webinar is to discuss the ISS National Lab Research Announcement (NLRA 2021-3) soliciting proposals focused on flight investigations for applied research and development, translational medicine, technology readiness level maturation, and technology demonstrations to be performed on the International Space Station (ISS). The webinar will take place on February 11, 2021 at 1 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. Upon completion of the webinar, a recording will be made available to the research community through the research announcement landing page.

Through this research announcement, respondents may propose to use the unique ISS environment to develop, test, or mature products and processes that have a demonstrated potential to produce near-term and positive direct or indirect economic impact. Flight projects selected via this research announcement may be awarded funding to enable mission integration and operations support for projects that will be implemented on the ISS National Lab.

This research announcement will follow a two-step proposal submission process. Before being invited to submit a full proposal, all interested investigators must complete and submit a Step One concept for review by end of day on February 25, 2021. Full proposals (from those invited to submit) will be due by end of day April 26, 2021.
