Initiate a new Letter of Intent (LOI) by logging into the EMSL User Portal and clicking “Submit a Proposal/LOI” in the left-hand navigation of the home screen. The form will guide you to enter details about the proposal, the participants, funding, resources, and samples. Review the entire form well in advance of the submission deadline to make sure you have enough time to compile the required information.
The Proposed Research Project Description is uploaded into the form as a PDF. See the Letter of Intent Guidance for formatting and content requirements. Note that several required appendices must be included with the project description as a single PDF document.
Your LOI will be reviewed for responsiveness to the call and alignment to EMSL, ARM, and DOE BER missions and feedback may be provided regarding the feasibility of the proposed research.
