We thought you would want to know about this funding opportunity:

Ethical, Legal, and Societal Implications (ELSI) of Research on Alternative Bioenergy Technologies, Synthetic Genomics, or Nanotechnologies

The U.S. Department of Energy requests proposals for Ethical, Legal, and Societal Implications of Research on Alternative Bioenergy Technologies, Synthetic Genomics, or Nanotechnologies. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: Impacts from changing land use patterns; the use of "dual-use" crops (food vs. energy), and implications resulting from the exploration and exploitation of microbes and microbial capabilities which would result from a large biomass to biofuels effort. $1 million expected to be available, 5-9 awards are anticipated.

Pre-applications are required and are due February 8, 2007, final proposals due April, 19, 2007. For more info, contact Deborah Greenawalt at Deb.Greenawalt@science.doe.gov or go to:

The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) is a non-profit organization that works at the nexus of policy and innovation to promote environmentally sustainable societies. EESI was founded in 1984 by a bipartisan group of Congressional Members dedicated to finding environmental and energy solutions. EESI provides credible, timely information and innovative policy ideas through coalition building, media outreach, publications, briefings, workshops and task forces on the issues of energy efficiency and renewable energy, transportation, smart growth, agriculture and global climate change. Carol Werner leads the EESI team as executive director.
