Informational Webinar on NSF 15-598, Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI)
October 2, 2015 1:00 PM
October 2, 2015 3:00 PM
NSF Headquarters, Arlington
An introduction to solicitation NSF 15-598, Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI): Network Coordination Office, Computational Modeling and Simulation Center, and Post-Disaster, Rapid Response Research Facility
Alternate date (only if October 2, 2015 requires rescheduling): October 8, 2015, 1:00 – 3:00 pm EST
This informational webinar will provide an overview presentation and answers to questions on the National Science Foundation (NSF) program solicitation Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI) (NSF 15-598).
NHERI will be a distributed, multi-user, national facility to provide the natural hazards engineering community with access to research infrastructure (earthquake and wind engineering experimental facilities, cyberinfrastructure, computational modeling and simulation tools, and research data), coupled with education and community outreach activities. NHERI will enable research and educational advances that can contribute knowledge and innovation for the nation's civil infrastructure and communities to prevent natural hazard events from becoming societal disasters. This webinar will address the three components of NHERI competed in NSF 15-598: Network Coordination Office, Computational Modeling and Simulation Center, and Post-Disaster, Rapid Response Research Facility.
Questions should be submitted via email in advance of the webinar to Joy M. Pauschke at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 28, 2015.
