NSF-DHS funding to develop and share infrastructure modeling data
March 30, 2017
The National Science Foundation (NSF), in collaboration with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), announces its intention to fund research to develop and make available simulated and synthetic data on interdependent critical infrastructures (ICIs), and thus to improve understanding and performance of these systems.
See NSF Dear Colleague Letter: Simulated and Synthetic Data for Infrastructure Modeling (SSDIM) (NSF 17-074) for more information.
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.
