Title: Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI) Foundational Science Research Unit (FSRU)

Sponsor: Department of Defense - Department of the Army

Deadline: 05/15/2015

Amount: Unspecified

 

Description: ARI is the Army’s lead agency for the conduct of research, development, and analyses for the improvement of Army readiness and performance via research advances and applications of the behavioral and social sciences that address personnel, organization, training, and leader development issues.

In addition to programmatic efforts to develop and evaluate psychological and behavioral theory, ARI strongly encourages researchers to propose novel, state-of-the-art, and multidisciplinary approaches that address difficult problems. A key consideration in the decision to support a research proposal is that its findings are likely to stimulate new, basic behavioral research, which in turn will lead to improved performance of Army personnel and their units. Proposals may address both traditional behavioral issues as well as psychophysiological (to include neuroscience) and network science approaches to social phenomena, memory, cognition, and personality.
