NSF Electronic Research Administration Forum
The voice of the user remains a central focus of the National Science Foundation's internal planning activities and systems modernization efforts related to proposal preparation and award management policies and processes. NSF has historically relied on community feedback via long-established outreach mechanisms as well as through an ongoing dialog with institutions and research administration-focused associations.
NSF hosted the most recent ERA Forum Webinar on May 14, 2020. The Foundation looks forward to your participation in future events.
