NSF invites input on data-focused cyberinfrastructure to support future data-intensive research
October 25, 2019
An NSF Request for Information invites the community to provide input on specific data-intensive science and engineering research questions and challenges and the essential data-related cyberinfrastructure services and capabilities needed to publish, discover, transport, manage and process data in secure, performant and scalable ways to enable that data-intensive research.
Contributions must be received on or before 5:00 PM Eastern time on December 16, 2019.
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 2021 budget of $8.5 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.
