NSF CI 2030 Request for Information


NSF‘s investments in research cyberinfrastructure (CI) enable the science and engineering research discovery process, and span advanced computing resources, data and software infrastructure, workflow systems and approaches, networking, cybersecurity and associated workforce development.

From 2012-2017, NSF‘s cross-cutting CI investments were organized under an NSF-wide initiative entitled Cyberinfrastructure for 21st Century Science and Engineering (CIF21). As CIF21 began to sunset, NSF initiated an effort to refresh its vision, strategy, and investment approaches for cyberinfrastructure to support the evolving needs of the science and engineering research community.

As an important part of the information-gathering to guide the development of a new CI strategy, from January to April, 2017, the National Science Foundation (NSF) requested input from the science and engineering research communities on "Future Needs for Advanced Cyberinfrastructure to Support Science and Engineering Research (NSF CI 2030)". (NSF 17-031).


NSF received more than 130 responses to this Request for Information (RFI), comprising contributions from over 360 named authors across the full spectrum of science and engineering research domains. RFI response Authors agreed to allow NSF to make their responses public per a Creative Commons license.

These responses will be collectively employed as input into NSF‘s planning for future CI strategy and programs going forward.

Access to these responses is provided below in a sortable table (click the table headers to sort by the desired column). Individual responses can be downloaded by clicking on the file name. The entire response set can be downloaded as a zip file by clicking the "Download All Responses" button.
