NSF Seeking Engineering Community Input for Topic Ideas for FY 2014 Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation

Aug 01, 2012

The National Science Foundation (NSF) invites the engineering research community to submit suggestions for topic ideas to be considered for the FY 2014 Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation (EFRI) Program Solicitation. The deadline for submission is September 14, 2012.

Suggestions for EFRI Topic Ideas are solicited and vetted every two years. Selected Topics become the foci of EFRI-supported research. Solicitations are announced annually for research proposals that fall under the specified topic areas.

Dear Colleague Letter with background info and instructions for submitting topic ideas

EFRI was established in FY 2007 to serve a critical role in focusing the engineering community on important emerging areas in a timely manner. Each year, EFRI evaluates, recommends, and funds interdisciplinary initiatives at the emerging frontiers of engineering research and innovation. These transformative opportunities may lead to: new research directions; new industries or capabilities that result in a leadership position for the country; and/or significant progress on a recognized National need or grand challenge.
