NSF calls for discoveries to revolutionize materials for buildings

June 4, 2018

The National Science Foundation (NSF) invites proposals to the Engineering for Civil Infrastructure (ECI) program to investigate wholly new materials and radical changes in the design of conventional materials, through the adaptation and integration of advanced technologies, to enable high-performance buildings (structural systems, foundation systems, and building envelopes).

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.
