STEM + Computing Partnerships

By | | No Comments

Expect a due date in March 2018. 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 and Future Learning Technologies

By | | No Comments

Expect due date in mid Feb. 2018. 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.

Range $10,000 – $1,000,000 depending on the program. The MML Grant Program provides financial assistance to support the conduct of research or a recipientĀs portion of collaborative research in the following fields: materials science and engineering, materials measurement science, biosystems and biomaterials, biomolecular measurements, chemical sciences, and applied chemicals and materials.

Computer and Information Science and Engineering Research Initiation Initiative (CISE-CRII)

By | | No Comments

With the goal of encouraging research independence immediately upon obtaining one’s first academic position after receipt of the PhD, the Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) will award grants to initiate the course of one’s independent research. Understanding the critical role of establishing that independence early in one’s career, it is expected that funds will be used to support untenured faculty or research scientists (or equivalent) in their first three years in a primary academic position after the PhD, but not more than a total of five years after completion of their PhD.

Cybermanufacturing Systems

An opportunity for researchers to pursue research and educational efforts to accelerate the creation of an interoperating, cross-process manufacturing service layer that enables the rapid, bottom-up transformation of access to manufacturing services.

Cyberinfrastructure for Emerging Science and Engineering Research (CESER)

By | | No Comments

The overall goal of the Cyberinfrastructure for Emerging Science and Engineering Research (CESER) program is to foster the development of innovative cyberinfrastructure (CI) technologies and new means of leveraging existing CI resources to catalyze emerging areas of potentially transformative science and engineering research, including NSF priority areas, national strategic initiatives, and international collaborative research._

Data Infrastructure Building Blocks (DIBBs)

By | | No Comments

Expect early Jan 2018. The NSF vision for a Cyberinfrastructure Framework for 21st_Century Science and Engineering (CIF21) considers an integrated, scalable, and sustainable cyberinfrastructure to be crucial for innovation in science and engineering (see_www.nsf.gov/cif21). The Data Infrastructure Building Blocks (DIBBs) program is an integral part of CIF21. The DIBBs program encourages development of robust and shared data-centric cyberinfrastructure capabilities, to accelerate interdisciplinary and collaborative research in areas of inquiry stimulated by data.
