Special Announcement

Dear Colleague Letter: New Solutions to Create Integrative Data Management Infrastructure(s) for Research Across the Sciences (NSF 12-090)

Innovation Corps Program (I-Corps)

NSF seeks to develop and nurture a national innovation ecosystem that builds upon fundamental research to guide the output of scientific discoveries closer to the development of technologies, products and processes that benefit society. In order to jumpstart a national innovation ecosystem, NSF is establishing the NSF Innovation Corps (NSF I-Corps). The NSF I-Corps' purpose is to identify NSF-funded researchers who will receive additional support - in the form of mentoring and funding - to accelerate innovation that can attract subsequent third-party funding.
