Description: The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to provide grant opportunities to universities with graduate programs in mining and explosives engineering to 1) support research related to mine emergencies, and 2) build on the work of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to address mandates in the Mine Improvement and New Emergency Response Act of 2006 (P.L. 109-236). Research priorities include: developing new wireless communication devices and methodologies; developing training, systems, and tools to facilitate miner self-escape; and continuing to improve the design of refuge alternatives. Other possible research areas of interest may include other health and safety issues in related areas, particularly those related to mine emergencies caused by mine fires and explosions. Interested applicants are encouraged to consider aspects of their graduate program in mining and explosives engineering, including unique facilities, that could best support research related to mine emergencies.
