Date: Thursday, August 24

Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Location: A004 Blount Hall (BLNT)

The National Science Foundation (NSF) Science and Technology Centers (STC) program supports innovative, potentially transformative, complex research and education projects that require large-scale, long-term awards. STCs conduct world-class research through partnerships among academic institutions, national laboratories, industrial organizations, and/or other public/private entities, and via international collaborations, as appropriate. They provide a means to undertake significant investigations at the interfaces of disciplines and/or fresh approaches within disciplines. STCs may involve any areas of science and engineering that NSF supports. STCs investments support the NSF vision of advancing discovery, innovation, and education beyond the frontiers of current knowledge, and empowering future generations in science and engineering. Please see the NSF STC program page for information on past awards, past solicitations, FAQs, and more.

The Office of Research and Engagement (ORE) will present an information session that will provide an overview of the STC program, the internal limited submission process, and criteria that will be used to identify proposals for submission to NSF in 2018.

ORE will conduct the internal limited submission competition for the STC program in the coming months. Any researcher considering a submission to the internal competition should attend this information session or send a representative. Registering will ensure that you receive updates and relevant materials, even if you are unable to attend the information session.
