policy and practice, or (2) lead to the production of useful material(s), device(s), system(s), or method(s) that have the potential for forensic application.

The intent of this program is to direct the findings of basic scientific research; research and development in broader scientific fields applicable to forensic science; and ongoing forensic science research toward the development of highly-discriminating, accurate, reliable, cost-effective, and rapid methods for the identification, analysis, and interpretation of physical evidence for criminal justice purposes.

Projects should address the challenges and needs of the forensic science community.

The operational needs discussed at NIJ's FY 2016 Forensic Science TWG meeting may be found on NIJ.gov.

Additional research needs of the forensic science community can be found at the Organization of Scientific Area Committees website.

While the goals and deliverables of proposed projects do not necessarily need to result in immediate solutions to the posted challenges or needs, they should speak to them and produce knowledge that adds to work towards eventual resolutions.
