DCL: RFI for Advanced Cyberinfrastructure
March 23, 2017
In January, NSF released a Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) - Request for Information (RFI) on Future Needs for Advanced Cyberinfrastructure to Support Science and Engineering Research (NSF CI 2030).
Responses to this RFI will directly inform the shaping of NSF’s investment plans for research cyberinfrastructure – advanced computing; data, software, and networking infrastructure; cybersecurity, and associated workforce development – to revolutionize the frontiers of all science and engineering domains over the next decade and beyond.
The response deadline is April 5, 2017, 5:00 PM ET. I strongly encourage you to provide a contribution so that the needs of your research discipline will be well-represented in NSF’s planning and prioritization in this critical area. The DCL provides full background and the a link to the required submission website.
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) 2017, its budget is $7.5 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 48,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards.
