NSF Interdisciplinary Funding Opportunity: Supporting Research Advances in Smart and Connected Communities
The National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Directorates for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE), Education and Human Resources (EHR), Engineering (ENG), Geosciences (GEO), and Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (SBE) wish to notify the community of their intention to support, foster, and accelerate fundamental research that addresses challenges in enabling Smart and Connected Communities (S&CC).
With this Dear Colleague Letter (DCL), NSF invites supplements to existing CISE, EHR, ENG, GEO, and SBE grants, or new EArly-concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGER) proposals submitted to the CISE, EHR, ENG, GEO, and/or SBE directorates. Supplemental proposals must enhance existing projects by incorporating or exploring the concepts described in this DCL, while demonstrating how the proposed work is related to the active project and must describe how the research and activities fit within the Smart and Connected Communities vision.
For more information including examples of relevant projects and the list of program directors, please read the DCL.
Proposal deadline is March 1, 2016 or earlier.
