This program is designed to increase the capability and capacity to carry out basic research in information technology at U.S. institutions. The program supports the acquisition and/or development of advanced resources for research and integrated research/education activities. Resources may include research equipment, instrumentation, software, data repositories or services. Resources supported under this program are those generally not supported by other programs, because of cost, complexity, level of shared use or other reasons. The Program has three parts: 

  • CISE Instrumentation. Grants for the acquisition and purchase of research resources in areas of science or engineering supported in the CISE Directorate. These research resources should be required for at least two research projects and no more than four research projects. 
  • Collaborative Research Resources [no awards in FY2001]. Grants to support the establishment, enhancement, and operation of major resources for multi-investigator, synergistic research or integrated research/education. Awards may be for activities solely within a single academic department, activities drawing from several departments in a single institution, and activities spanning several different institutions.
  • Distributed Research Resources. Grants for the establishment and maintenance of unique, geograpically distributed resources that, once established, can be accessed remotely by CISE researchers around the country.

 In each of these programs, interdisciplinary activities are strongly encouraged, but emphasis should be on advancing knowledge and increasing capacity for research in areas of science and engineering supported by CISE. Women, minorities, persons with disabilities, minority institutions and researchers in EPSCoR jurisdictions are strongly encouraged to submit proposals.
