Request for Community Input on Cyberinfrastructure Vision Document - Closed
Over the past year, NSF's Cyberinfrastructure Council, based on input from the research community, has developed a comprehensive vision to guide the Foundation's future investments in cyberinfrastructure - the IT-based infrastructure increasingly essential to science and engineering leadership in the 21st century. This is summarized in the document entitled NSF’s Cyberinfrastructure Vision for 21st Century Discovery.
In recent months, public comments were solicited on the draft version of this document. The National Science Foundation would like to thank all of those who provided feedback on the Cyberinfrastructure Vision for 21st Century Discovery. These comments are being considered during the preparation of the final version of the document. The public comment period is now closed and the final version of NSF's Cyberinfrastructure Vision document will be published on the NSF web-site in the coming weeks.
The U.S. National Science Foundation propels the nation forward by advancing fundamental research in all fields of science and engineering. NSF supports research and people by providing facilities, instruments and funding to support their ingenuity and sustain the U.S. as a global leader in research and innovation. With a fiscal year 2022 budget of $8.8 billion, NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 40,000 competitive proposals and makes about 11,000 new awards. Those awards include support for cooperative research with industry, Arctic and Antarctic research and operations, and U.S. participation in international scientific efforts.
