Solar, Heliospheric, and Interplanetary Environment (SHINE) is a broad-based research program supporting enhanced understanding of and predictive capabilities for the processes by which energy in the form of magnetic fields and particles are produced by the Sun and/or accelerated in interplanetary space and on the mechanisms by which these fields and particles are transported to the Earth through the inner heliosphere. Broad-based, grass-roots associations such as SHINE have developed to focus community effort on these scientific questions.  Proposals are solicited for research directly related to topics under consideration and discussion at community workshops organized by SHINE under focused topic areas indicated in the program description.  Information on the current activities of SHINE may be found at the following web site:
