NSF highlights opportunities to collaborate with NIST researchers
June 23, 2022
The NSF and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have shared interests in a variety of basic and applied scientific and engineering fields. NSF calls attention to opportunities for researchers supported by NSF to collaborate with researchers in the NIST Laboratories and User Facilities.
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 2022 budget of $8.8 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.
