NSF invites proposals for data science in chemistry and chemical engineering research

May 4, 2018

The NSF Division of Chemistry (CHE) and certain programs in the NSF Engineering Directorate's Division of Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental, and Transport Systems (CBET) invite research proposals that utilize modern data science in the context of chemical and chemical engineering research.

Successful proposals will emphasize new information that can be obtained from better utilization of data (including data from multiple laboratories, techniques, and/or chemical systems), and how this can lead to new research directions. 

Learn more in Dear Colleague Letter: Data-Driven Discovery Science in Chemistry (D3SC) (NSF 18-075).

This research will support Harnessing the Data Revolution, one of 10 Big Ideas for future NSF investment at the frontiers of science and engineering. Harnessing the Data Revolution aims to promote engagement of NSF's research community in the pursuit of fundamental research in data science and engineering, the development of a cohesive, federated, national-scale approach to research data infrastructure, and the development of a 21st-century data-capable workforce

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) 2018, its budget is $7.8 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.
