NSF calls for conference proposals to advance Sustainable Urban Systems (SUS) research networks

December 20, 2018

In January 2018, NSF's Advisory Committee for Environmental Research and Education completed the report entitled "Sustainable Urban Systems: Articulating a Long-Term Convergence Research Agenda." 

Now, NSF is calling for conference proposals on "Concepts for Advancing Sustainable Urban Systems (SUS) Research Networks."

The U.S. National Science Foundation propels the nation forward by advancing fundamental research in all fields of science and engineering. NSF supports research and people by providing facilities, instruments and funding to support their ingenuity and sustain the U.S. as a global leader in research and innovation. With a fiscal year 2020 budget of $8.3 billion, NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 40,000 competitive proposals and makes about 11,000 new awards. Those awards include support for cooperative research with industry, Arctic and Antarctic research and operations, and U.S. participation in international scientific efforts.
