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 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) 2016, 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. NSF also awards about $626 million in professional and service contracts yearly.
