New CI-TEAM Solicitation Due June 5, 2006
  • Aims to prepare science and engineering workforce
    with knowledge and skills needed to create,
    advance and use cyberinfrastructure for
    discovery, learning and innovation across and
    within all areas of science and engineering.
  • Exploits the power of Cyberinfrastructure to
    cross digital, disciplinary, institutional, and
    geographic divides and fosters inclusion of
    diverse groups of people and organizations, with
    particular emphasis on traditionally
    underrepresented groups.
  • Focus on workforce development activities lt50
    tool development.
  • FY06 program funds 10 M for two types of
    awards
  • Demonstration Projects 250,000
  • Implementation Projects 1,000,000 (expected to
    deliver sustainable learning and workforce
    development activities that complement ongoing
    NSF investment in cyberinfrastructure).

Additional Pointers
  • From Kostoff, Ronald (Office of Naval
    Research)
  • Sent 3/26/2005 803 AM
  • SUBJECT ACCELERATING RADICAL DISCOVERY AND
    INNOVATION
  • New of approaches for systematically identifying
    and accelerating potentially radical discovery
    and innovation in science and technology. This
    systematic capability is applicable to all phases
    of the science and technology development cycle
    (planning, investment/ selection, execution,
    review, publication/ dissemination, transition).
    It should be of interest to research managers,
    performers, administrators, investors, and
    journal editors who might benefit strongly from
    using such a systematic
  • discovery and innovation approach in their work.
