DOE-NE Revises MS-NE-3 Work Scope to include interactions with the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) Nuclear Education, Skills and Technology (NEST) Program

October 10, 2019

For investigators applying to the MS-NE-3 workscope, incremental funding is potentially available through participation in the Department of Energy’s interactions with the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) Nuclear Education, Skills and Technology (NEST) program.  NEST ties together university research projects across multiple countries to provide students a fuller professional experience as they pursue their degree.  NEST funds are provided to allow travel for students to interact with colleagues in other NEST countries in accordance with NEST program rules.  Applications submitted to this work-scope do not require NEST participation.  Access to NEST funds do require investigators to agree to participate in NEST.  Investigators must clearly indicate in their application if they are willing to join as a NEST project or not.

 

NOTE: Anticipated budget requirements for NEST participation must not be included in an application submitted to this workscope.  NEST funding received by successful applicants will not be included or tracked as part of the overall project budget and not subject to inclusion in project financial reporting.  Additionally, participation in NEST will not be a factor considered in the review of applications.
