The U.S. Department of Energy announced the opening of a $400 million funding opportunity for research supporting the Department's clean energy, economic, and national security goals, according to a release published on October 4. The major programs benefiting from the opportunity include advanced scientific computing research, basic energy sciences, biological and environmental research, fusion energy sciences, high energy physics, nuclear physics, isotope R&D and production, and accelerator R&D and production, all of which are parts of the DOE's Office of Science.

“DOE’s Office of Science is reaching new frontiers every day on the journey to tackle climate change and build industries of the future through solutions-driven research, world-class innovation, and the diligent work of America’s best and brightest scientists,” said DOE Secretary Jennifer M. Granholm. “This comprehensive investment will continue to support DOE — our nation’s ‘solutions department’ — and solidify America’s global leadership in science and technology.”

The funding opportunity announcement, otherwise known as FY 2023 Continuation of Solicitation for the Office of Science Financial Assistance Program or, more informally, the Open Call, was opened on September 30, and will close a year to the day, the release reported. It will also allow the Office of Science to receive applications for research in areas not usually covered by more focused, topical funding announcements.

Through such funding opportunities, the Office of Science supports approximately 25,000 researchers, including Ph.D. scientists, engineers, graduate students, undergraduates, and technical support personnel. Researchers backed by the Office have made advancements in areas including solar energy, bioenergy, solid-state lighting, and batteries.

The Office funds research at hundreds of universities nationwide, and it acts as the largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the U.S. It's considered the steward of 10 of the DOE's national laboratories, and it is also the lead federal research entity supporting clean energy and security research.
