Computing Community Consortium Blog

The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.

National Science Foundation Research Traineeship Program has a Focus on Data Science

April 22nd, 2014 / in Uncategorized / by Ann Drobnis

nsf_logo_new_transparentThe National Science Foundation (NSF) has revamped the Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) Program.  It is now called the National Science Foundation Research Traineeship (NRT) Program.  Like IGERT, NRT programs are supposed to develop graduate STEM training programs which will give students the skills, knowledge and competencies needed for a full range of STEM careers.  One key feature of the new program is the specific focus on Data Enabled Science and Engineering.  From the announcement:

The NRT program initially has one priority research theme – Data-Enabled Science and Engineering (DESE); in addition, proposals are encouraged on any other crosscutting, interdisciplinary theme. In either case, proposals should identify the alignment of project research themes with national research priorities and the need for innovative approaches to train graduate students in those areas.

Letters of Intent are due May 20, 2014 and full proposals are due June 24, 2014.  You can view the full solicitation here.

An informational webinar will be held on April 29, 2014 at 2:00 PM EDT.  Register for the webinar here.
