On September 1, JGI held a JGI Engagement: Pro Tips for Successful Community Science Program (CSP) Applications Webinar inviting researchers to submit white papers to the CSP New Investigator call for proposals. The proposal call is open year-round, but proposals submitted by September 21, 2020, will be included in the next review.
