SYNOPSIS

The goal of the ERC Program is to integrate engineering research and education with technological innovation to transform national prosperity, health, and security. ERCs create an innovative, inclusive culture in engineering to cultivate new ideas and pursue engineering discovery that achieves a significant science, technology, and societal outcome within the 10-year timeframe of NSF support. For information on individual ERCs and their achievements, go to: ERC-assoc.org.

Those who submit proposals in response to this solicitation will need to address the following questions:

  1. What is the compelling new idea and how does it relate to national needs?
  2. Why is a center necessary to tackle the idea?
  3. How will the ERC's infrastructure integrate and implement research, workforce development and innovation ecosystem development efforts to achieve its vision?
