ROSES-15 Amendment 27: This Amendment releases program element A.44 the SERVIR Applied Sciences Team as part of ROSES-2015.

SERVIR, an initiative of NASA and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), fosters applications of Earth observations to help developing countries assess environmental conditions and climate change to improve their planning and actions. This program element invites proposals for membership on the second SERVIR Applied Sciences Team and Team member projects through this program element. The primary purpose of this Team is to improve, enrich, and expand the use of Earth observations in the countries associated with the SERVIR regions based on the needs of the region. The Team will be a resource and base of expertise in research, applications, information utilization and management, and innovation that the SERVIR Coordination Office and regions can draw on, consult, and engage.

It is expected that the Team will collectively possess a range of experience, skills, and expertise related to user engagement, decision support, Earth science, monitoring and evaluation, applied science, and international development. Selected participants will likely include social scientists and economists, Earth science researchers, technical experts, modelers, geospatial experts, visualization specialists, applications specialists, international development specialists, and others.

Step-1 proposals are due November 16, 2015 and Step-2 proposals are due April 29, 2016. A Preproposal telecon will occur on October 15, 2015. For more information visit
