NSF requests input on mid-scale research infrastructure needs
October 10, 2017
NSF has issued a Request for Information (RFI) on existing and future needs for mid-scale research infrastructure projects from the US-based NSF science and engineering community.
For the purposes of this RFI, NSF defines Research Infrastructure (RI) as any combination of facilities, equipment, instrumentation, computational hardware and software, and the necessary human capital in support of the same.
This RFI is a response to the American Innovation and Competitiveness Act (AICA, Public Law No. 114-329), Section 109.
Learn more about the RFI's purpose, how to respond and other details in NSF Dear Colleague Letter: Request for Information on Mid-scale Research Infrastructure (18-013).
Responses may be submitted through December 8, 2017.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2017, its budget is $7.5 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 48,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards.
