The COEs are multi-disciplinary, university-based research and education Centers that conduct rigorous, innovative and useful research.
DHS expects the COEs to break new theoretical and empirical ground as well as adapt existing approaches to Homeland Security missions and technology gaps.
methods proposed under these funding continuations should be rooted in rigorous science and engineering disciplines.
Knowledge generated by the COE's research must be amenable to integration with homeland security customers.
As a whole, the portfolio of proposed projects should generate substantial original and cutting-edge research results.
Applications for supplemental funding will be considered for research and education activities within the scope of work for each COEThis NOFO is for supplemental awards for existing Centers of Excellence (COEs) recipients:Terrorism Prevention Counterterrorism Research (TPCR) - University of Nebraska OmahaTerrorism Prevention Counterterrorism Research (TPCR) - University of Nebraska OmahaArctic Domain Awareness Center (ADAC) - University of Alaska AnchorageMaritime Security Center (MSC) - Stevens Institute of TechnologyCritical Infrastructure Resilience Institute (CIRI) - University of Illinois at Urbana-ChampaignCoastal Resilience Center (CRC) - University of North Carolina at Chapel HillCenter for Criminal Investigations and Network Analysis (CINA) - George Mason UniversityCenter for Accelerating Operational Efficiency (CAOE) - Arizona State UniversityCenter for Cross-Border Threats Screening and Supply Chain Defense (CBTS) - Texas A&M University
