Transdisciplinary Research in Principles of Data Science Phase I (TRIPODS)

By | | No Comments

Last deadline was 1/19/17. We will post if there is a follow up. Transdisciplinary Research In Principles Of Data Science_(TRIPODS) aims to bring together the statistics, mathematics, and theoretical computer science communities to develop the theoretical foundations of data science through integrated research and training activities. Phase I, described in this solicitation, will support the development of small collaborative Institutes.

Training-based Workforce Development for Advanced Cyberinfrastructure

By | | No Comments

The overarching goal of this program is to prepare, nurture and grow the national scientific workforce for creating, utilizing, and supporting advanced cyberinfrastructure (CI) that enables cutting-edge science and engineering and contributes to the Nation’s overall economic competitiveness and security._ This solicitation calls for developing innovative, scalable training programs to address the emerging needs and unresolved bottlenecks in scientific and engineering workforce development of targeted, multidisciplinary communities, at the postsecondary level and beyond, leading to transformative changes in the state of workforce preparedness for advanced CI in the short and long terms.

Cybersecurity Innovation for Cyberinfrastructure (CICI)

By | | No Comments

Last deadline was 3/1/17. We will post if there is a follow up. Advancements in data-driven scientific research depend on trustworthy and reliable cyberinfrastructure. Researchers rely on a variety of networked technologies and software tools to achieve their scientific goals. These may include local or remote instruments, wireless sensors, software programs, operating systems, database servers, high-performance computing, large-scale storage, and other critical infrastructure connected by high-speed networking. This complex, distributed, interconnected global cyberinfrastructure ecosystem presents unique cybersecurity challenges. NSF-funded scientific instruments, sensors and equipment are specialized, highly-visible assets that present attractive targets for both unintentional errors and malicious activity; untrustworthy software or a loss of integrity of the data collected by a scientific instrument may mean corrupt, skewed or incomplete results._

Cyberlearning and Future Learning Technologies

By | | No Comments

Last deadline was 2/10/17. We will post if there is a follow up. The intention of this program is to advance technologies that specifically focus on the experiences of learners; innovations that simply focus on making teaching easier will not be funded. Proposals that focus on teachers or facilitators as learners are invited; the aim in these proposals should be to help teachers and facilitators capitalize on the affordances of technology and fundamental knowledge about how people learn to make the learning experiences of learners more effective.

STEM + Computing Partnerships

By | | No Comments

Last deadline was 3/29/17. We will post if there is a follow up. The STEM + Computing Partnerships (STEM+C) program seeks to advance a 21st century conceptualization of education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) that includes computing, both as a STEMdiscipline in its own right consistent with the STEM Education Act of 2015, which explicitly includes computing as a STEM discipline for purposes of federal programs [1] and as a discipline integral to the practice of all other STEM disciplines._

Cyberlearning for Work at the Human-Technology Frontier

By | | No Comments

The purpose of the Cyberlearning for Work at the Human-Technology Frontier program is to fund exploratory and synergistic research in learning technologies to prepare learners to excel in work at the human-technology frontier. This program responds to the pressing societal need to educate and re-educate learners of all ages (students, teachers and workers) in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) content areas to ultimately function in highly technological environments, including in collaboration with intelligent systems. Innovative technologies can reshape learning processes, which in turn can influence new technology design.

Department of Defense University Research Instrumentation

Last deadline was 7/7/17. We will post when the 2018 deadline is announced. DURIP is designed to improve the capabilities of accredited United States (U.S.) institutions of higher education to conduct research and to educate scientists and engineers in areas important to national defense, by providing funds for the acquisition of research equipment or instrumentation
