Science and Technology Centers: Integrative Partnerships (STCs)

Submitted by Feldman.Maryann on

NSF is starting a new competition round for Science and Technology Centers:  Integrative Partnerships (STCs).  This is an NSF-wide competition that includes all NSF-funded fields of science and engineering; the awards are large-scale and long-term ($5 million per year for 5 years, with the possibility of renewal).   

The goal is to support important investigations at the interfaces of disciplines or fresh approaches within disciplines.  STCs bring together multiple institutions in a partnership. 

The solicitation is now available:  http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2014/nsf14600/nsf14600.htm

The competition has two rounds:  preproposals are due on December 11, 2014, with a goal of inviting full proposals by March 16, 2015.  Awards will be announced in April 2016.

It would be great to see proposals from this community of scholars.
