ENG encourages proposals for Research Coordination Networks on semiconductors

September 1, 2022

The NSF Directorate for Engineering encourages the submission of proposals to the Research Coordination Networks for Semiconductors (RCN-SC) program that focus on developing, piloting, and sharing innovative and transformative approaches to enhance knowledge in the broader area of semiconductors. 

Proposed RCN-SC with networking activities that lower access barriers to advanced technologies, encourage student engagement, and support a pipeline of talent in semiconductors education and innovation are especially encouraged.

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 2023 budget of $9.5 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.
