Research Infrastructure Program


See program guidelines for contact information.


Experimental infrastructure plays a central role in enabling transformative research and innovation at the frontiers of computing and discovery, and in providing unique learning opportunities for current and future generations of computing researchers and educators. Cognizant of the diversity of research infrastructure needs in the CISE community, this program provides support for the acquisition, enhancement, and operation of forefront computing research infrastructure and experimental facilities for all CISE research and education areas. Supported facilities range from instrumentation needed by a few projects to major experimental facilities for an entire department. Support is also provided to enhance the computational and human infrastructure in minority-serving institutions and to support the equipment needs of collaborative, distributed research projects. A goal for the coming year is to support a wider range of infrastructure needs, research projects, and institutions.
