Amendment 20: Space Weather Centers of Excellence Final Text and Due Dates.

ROSES-2022 Amendment 20 releases final text and announces due dates for Space Weather Centers of Excellence (SWxC), program element B.22 of ROSES-22, which had been previously released as draft for community comment. The changes between draft and final will be summarized in a FAQ downloadable under "Other documents" on the NSPIRES page for this program element.

B.22 Space Weather Centers of Excellence (SWxC) solicits proposals for multi-institution, multi-/inter-/trans- disciplinary collaborations (Centers) that address grand challenge goals of space weather that are ambitious in scope and transformative in nature as part of an integrated multi-agency initiative to advance the science and technology of space weather. This program is intended to support research that cannot be effectively done by individual investigators or small teams, instead requiring the synergistic, coordinated efforts of a research center. This SWxC program takes advantage of lessons learned from ongoing and past science centers, the growing body of information on team science, and a coordinated national effort to improve space weather capabilities and preparedness.

Six-page Step-1 proposals are due June 21, 2022, and 25-page Step-2 proposals are due August 25, 2022. Comments and questions concerning B.22 SWxC may be to Jesse Woodroffe at

On or about May 18, 2022, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2022" (NNH22ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at
