The NSF Robotics team of program directors will hold an informational webinar to answer questions about the sunset of the National Robotics Initiative and share current NSF funding opportunities for robotics research. The webinar will take place on June 2, 2022, at 2:00 PM Eastern. 

NSF announced the ending of the National Robotics Initiative 3.0: Innovations in Integration of Robotics program in Dear Colleague Letter: NRI Sunset Announcement (NSF 22-081). Over the 12-year lifetime of the National Robotics Initiative (NRI), NSF and its federal NRI partners have invested over $250 million in over 300 pioneering research projects innovating robots to enhance human safety, productivity, and independence.

NSF remains committed to supporting and growing a thriving robotics research community. The Foundational Research in Robotics (FRR) program will now provide a single home for foundational research in robotics across NSF. FRR welcomes proposals on a broad spectrum of foundational research in robotics, including the topics of collaborative robotics and integration in robotics that were previously supported by NRI.

UPDATE: The NRI Sunset webinar recording and slides are now available. 

This event is part of Webinars/Webcasts.
