ECCS News & Events

Attention CAREER applicants and those submitting proposals to ECCS core programs: ECCS has updated its program descriptions for EPMD, CCSS, and EPCN to include new Program Directors and additional topic areas. As such, the program announcement numbers have been updated from PD 13-1517 (EPMD), PD 13-7564 (CCSS) and PD 13-7607 (EPCN/EPAS) to PD 16-1517 (EPMD), PD 16-7564 (CCSS) and PD 16-7607 (EPCN/EPAS) to reflect these additions. These new announcement numbers are available in Fastlane and Grants.gov for proposal submissions.

NNCI News: NSF has selected Georgia Tech’s Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology to be the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI) Coordinating Office. Georgia Tech will receive $3.5 million over five years for this role. This coordinating office will enhance the impact of all 16 NNCI sites as a national network of user facilities.
