Building Community and Capacity in Data Intensive Research in Education (BCC-EHR)
As part of NSF’s Cyberinfrastructure Framework for 21st Century Science and Engineering (CIF21) activity, the Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR) seeks to enable research communities to develop visions, teams, and capabilities dedicated to creating new, large-scale, next-generation data resources and relevant analytic techniques to advance fundamental research for areas of research covered by EHR programs. Successful proposals will outline activities that will have significant impacts across multiple fields by enabling new types of data-intensive research. Investigators should think broadly and create a vision that extends intellectually across multiple disciplines and that includes—but is not necessarily limited to – areas of research funded by EHR.Anticipated Type of Award: Standard Grant
Estimated Number of Awards: 5
Anticipated Funding Amount: $2,500,000
Full Proposal Deadline: March 15, 2017
