The Campus Cyberinfrastructure - Data, Networking, and Innovation (CC*DNI) program invests in campus-level data and networking infrastructure and integration activities tied to achieving higher levels of performance, reliability and predictability for science applications and distributed research projects. Science-driven requirements are the primary motivation for any proposed activity.

CC*DNI awards will be made in seven areas:

(1) Data Infrastructure Building Blocks (DIBBs) - Multi-Campus/Multi-Institution Model Implementations awards will be supported at up to $5,000,000 total for up to 5 years.

(2) Data Driven Networking Infrastructure for the Campus and Researcher awards will be supported at up to $500,000 total for up to 2 years.

(3) Network Design and Implementation for Small Institutions awards will be supported at up to $350,000 total for up to 2 years.

(4) Network Integration and Applied Innovation awards will be supported at up to $1,000,000 total for up to 2 years.

(5) Campus CI Engineer awards will be made at up to $400,000 total for up to 2 years.

(6) Regional Coordination and Partnership in Advanced Networking awards will be made at up to $150,000 for up to 2 years.

(7) Instrument Networking awards will be supported at up to $400,000 for up to two years.
