CMMI encourages data science approaches
December 13, 2019
One of NSF's 10 Big Ideas, Harnessing the Data Revolution, aims to enable new modes of data-driven discovery that will allow new fundamental questions to be asked and answered at the frontiers of science and engineering.
The Division of Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation (CMMI) of the Engineering Directorate invites current grantees to request supplemental funds to expand the breadth of their current activities through exploration and implementation of data science approaches.
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 2021 budget of $8.5 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.
