CMMI invites NSF Big Ideas proposals
December 7, 2017
The Division of Civil, Mechanical, and Manufacturing Innovation (CMMI) of the Engineering Directorate invites organizations to submit proposals relevant to the following four NSF Big Ideas, as they intersect with core CMMI topics defined in CMMI program descriptions:
- Work at the Human-Technology Frontier: Shaping the Future;
- Navigating the New Arctic;
- Harnessing the Data Revolution for 21st Century Science and Engineering; and
- Understanding the Rules of Life: Predicting Phenotype.
Proposals may be submitted to CMMI core programs; principal investigators are also encouraged to develop proposals for submission to the LEAP HI solicitation (Leading Engineering for America's Prosperity, Health, and Infrastructure).
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.
