June 9, 2021
NSF’s new Predictive Intelligence for Pandemic Prevention (PIPP) initiative is aimed at better understanding the dynamic nature of pathogen and disease emergence, which poses a continuing risk to our national security, health, and economic stability.
For PIPP Phase I, teams of researchers are invited to submit proposals for planning activities to develop multidisciplinary research centers that can address the complex challenges involved in forecasting and avoiding future pandemic-scale outbreaks. Learn more about PIPP at:
Phase I proposals are due by October 1, 2021. A Phase II solicitation for research center proposals is expected to be released in 2023.
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.
