New Requirements For DOE Research Grants

The Council of Scientific Society Presidents (CSSP) wants to make you aware of the new requirement when submitting grants for research to the Department of Energy (DoE). See details below. 

Everyone has a Role to Play in Making Science More Equitable and Inclusive 

  • Beginning in FY 2023, the Office of Science is adding a new requirement to our solicitation processes: applicants must now submit a plan for Promoting Inclusive and Equitable Research, or PIER Plan, along with their research proposals.
  • Beginning in FY 2023, proposals requesting funding to support a conference will require that the host organization of the conference have an established code of conduct or policy in place that addresses discrimination, harassment, bullying, and other exclusionary practices. It must also include processes for reporting and addressing complaints. Applicants will also be required to submit a recruitment and accessibility plan for speakers and attendees. This plan will need to include discussion of the recruitment of individuals from groups historically minoritized in the research community.

The Office of Science will be holding a community webinar on October 17th at 2pm ET to review the new PIER requirements. Register to join:
