Training-based Workforce Development for Advanced Cyberinfrastructure

Deadline Date: 02/14/2018


Scope: The National Science Foundation seeks applications for the Training-based Workforce Development for Advanced Cyberinfrastructure announcement to develop innovative, scalable training and education programs to address the emerging needs and unresolved bottlenecks in scientific and engineering research workforce development, from the postsecondary level to active researchers. Funds: Awards range from $300,000 to $500,000 per award and are up to three years in duration. Areas: NSF said the training and education programs, spanning targeted, multidisciplinary communities, will lead to transformative changes in the state of workforce preparedness for advanced cyberinfrastructure (CI)-enabled research in the short and long terms. This solicitation seeks to broaden CI access and adoption by increasing or deepening accessibility of methods and resources of advanced CI and of computational and data science and engineering by a wide range of scientific disciplines and institutions with lower levels of CI adoption to date, and harnessing the capabilities of larger segments of diverse underrepresented groups.
