Collaborations to Advance Cyberinfrastructure

The program supports early-stage collaboration among scientists, engineers and developers of innovative cyberinfrastructure capabilities, services and approaches. Successful CESER projects typically involve co-funding from the relevant disciplinary research programs within NSF. Before submitting a proposal, applicants must discuss their ideas with: a CESER Program Officer about appropriate venue for the proposal; and (2) relevant NSF disciplinary science and engineering research program to ensure interest in the proposed effort.

Competition to Fund Biodiversity Studies

The program supports research on the scope and role of life on Earth. The grantees will fill the most substantial gaps in the understanding Earth’s biodiversity. For this competition, NSF takes a broad view of biodiversity and focuses on the intersection of genetic, phylogenetic and functional dimensions of biodiversity. Successful proposals must integrate these three dimensions to understand interactions among them.

Robots to Work Beside People

The NRI-2.0 program builds on the original National Robotics Initiative program to support fundamental research to accelerate the development and use of collaborative robots that work beside or cooperatively with people. The focus of the NRI-2.0 program is on ubiquity, meaning seamless integration of co-robots to assist humans in every aspect of life. The program supports four main research goals to advance the goal of ubiquitous co-robots: (1) scalability; (2) customizability; (3) lowering barriers to entry; and (4) societal impact.
