No. Proposals will be solicited through a new call, tentatively called Interdisciplinary Consortia for Astrobiology Research (ICAR), for projects beyond the scope of the individual Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) programs (such as Habitable Worlds or Exobiology), but within the scope of the Research Coordination Networks. This solicitation will call for proposals for projects taking an interdisciplinary approach to a single, compelling question in astrobiology, addressing a single 2015 Astrobiology Strategy goal or several Strategy goals. The NASA Astrobiology Program will fund ICAR grants. When applying for ICAR grants, teams will be able to specify which RCN their research would be relevant to and which network they would join if selected.
