Partnerships For Innovation: Accelerating Innovation Research (PFI: AIR) Webinar

July 12, 2012

The Partnerships for Innovation (PFI): Accelerating Innovation Research (AIR), NSF 12-571, is offering two choices, Technology Translation and Research Alliance. Both choices are designed to accelerate innovation that results in the creation of new wealth and the building of strong local, regional, and national economies.  The first choice encourages the translation of technologically-promising research discoveries toward a path of commercialization; while the second choice promotes synergistic collaborations between an existing NSF-funded research alliance and other entities to translate and transfer existing research discoveries into commercial reality and spinoffs.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2020, its budget is $8.3 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 50,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards.
