Wouldn't it be nice if we could spend the four weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas resting on our laurels and contemplating all the good we've done in the prior year? Alas, that's not realistic and the work must continue if we want to continue seeing positive outcomes.
In that vein, here are three federal grants that opened this week. These grants are rather broad, in terms of who can apply for funding. Other new grant opportunities this week include funding for HIV and ALS research, worker rights' programs in Kazakhstan and Indonesia and advanced quantum and computing research.

National Science Foundation
Grant Title: National Robotics Initiative 2.0: Ubiquitous Collaborative Robots
Grant Info: https://www.grants.gov/view-opportunity.html?oppId=310513
Details: The program builds upon the original National Robotics Initiative (NRI) program to support fundamental research in the United States that will accelerate the development and use of collaborative robots (co-robots) that work beside or cooperatively with people. The focus of the NRI-2.0 program is onubiquity, which in this context means seamless integration of co-robots to assist humans in every aspect of life. The program supports four main research thrusts that are envisioned to advance the goal of ubiquitous co-robots: scalability, customizability, lowering barriers to entry, and societal impact.
