REASON (Rapid Explanation, Analysis and Sourcing Online) Proposers Day Event

IARPA has just announced the REASON (Rapid Explanation, Analysis and Sourcing Online) Program, which aims to develop technology to provide automated suggestions to intelligence analysts to help them improve the evidence and reasoning in their analytic reports in much the same way that automated grammar checkers provide suggestions to writers. This research will benefit from contributions of computer scientists, social scientists, and experts in philosophy, argumentation and logic. 


IARPA will hold a “Proposers’ Day” event on Wednesday, January 11, 2023 for people interested in learning more about the program. The event will include a presentation about REASON, a Q&A session, lightning talks, and opportunities to identify teaming partners. This will be a hybrid virtual/in-person event (in Northern Virginia) with a registration deadline of January 6, 2023.

Internal Opportunities

Racial Justice/Racial Equity Seed Funding (Provost Office)

Societal inequities along racial lines have deep historical and systemic roots and span many areas, including but not limited to education, housing, health, economic security, voting and political participation, and the criminal justice system. Understanding racial inequalities that exist in our society and identifying mechanisms to address them is critical to achieving a more equitable society. 

This funding opportunity seeks to identify and support research proposals from current, full-time members of the Emory faculty whose research, scholarly efforts, and creative activities address racial justice/racial equity. At Emory University, racial justice means making sure our society works for every citizen. Specifically, it is about working toward equity for individuals and groups systematically excluded and disadvantaged in the United States, whether that exclusion has historic origins or stems from current biased practices.

Center for Early Lifestage Vulnerabilities to Environmental Stressors - Cumulative Health Impacts for Children in Underserved Rural Agricultural Communities in the United States

Protecting children’s health is one of the most important responsibilities of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

"It is the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's policy to protect children from environmental exposures by consistently and explicitly considering early life exposures and lifelong health in all human health decisions.

Children's environmental health refers to the effect of environmental exposure during early life: from conception, infancy, early childhood and through adolescence until 21 years of age.

The EPA' s policy is informed by the scientific understanding that children may be at greater risk to environmental contaminants than adults due to differences in behavior and biology and that the effects of early life exposures may also arise in adulthood or in later generations (1).”

Deadline: 1/11/2023

Social Justice / DEI

Autism Secondary Data Analysis Research (Autism SDAR)

The purpose of the SDAR program is to support research that analyzes existing national data sets and/or administrative records to answer questions that can improve the health and well-being of MCH populations, including children and teenagers with autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities (ASD/DD).

The SDAR program helps researchers use existing data sets to identify new issues, study new research questions, test hypotheses, and determine pathways for intervention.

Existing and new public health challenges affecting MCH populations, including children with special health care needs (MCH SDAR) and children and adolescents with ASD/DD (Autism SDAR), require timely, evidence-based responses from programs, policy, and practice. Without sufficient evidence or data, it is hard to develop interventions addressing both existing and new issues.

Deadline: 2/13/2023
