The National Science Foundation (NSF) published a new Dear Colleague Letter (NSF 22-054):
Incorporating Human Behavior in Epidemiological Models (IHBEM)
For full details please see:
- Informational webinar: March 11, 2022
- Required project concept paper: April 1, 2022
- Full proposal (invitation required) deadline date: May 15, 2022
The Incorporating Human Behavior in Epidemiological Models (IHBEM) activity offers opportunities for support of projects in which researchers in the mathematical, statistical, and computational sciences partner with teams of researchers conducting fundamental interdisciplinary, potentially transformative research concerning the incorporation of human social, behavioral, and economic processes into mathematical epidemiological models. The IHBEM effort is motivated by the urgent need to provide more reliable modeling tools to inform decision making and to evaluate public health policies during pandemics and other public health crises, with the premise that important advances will be made by incorporating human behavioral and social processes into mathematical epidemiological models. A key reason for building such a research program is that unintended outcomes of public health interventions should not be unanticipated.
An informational webinar will be held on Friday, March 11, from 2:00 – 3:00 PM EST.
