NSF Grant: Cyberinfrastructure for Sustained Scientific Innovation (CSSI): Elements and Framework Implementations

February 13, 2019

This solicitation continues the 2018 CSSI program by removing the distinction between software and data elements/framework implementations, and instead emphasizing integrated cyberinfrastructure services.  See website for revisions.

The Cyberinfrastructure for Sustained Scientific Innovation (CSSI) umbrella program seeks to enable funding opportunities that are flexible and responsive to the evolving and emerging needs in cyberinfrastructure.

This particular CSSI solicitation requests only Elements and Framework Implementations classes of awards.

  • Elements: These awards target small groups that will create and deploy robust services for which there is a demonstrated need that will advance one or more significant areas of science and engineering.
  • Framework Implementations: These awards target larger, interdisciplinary teams organized around the development and application of common services, resulting in a sustainable community framework providing Cyberinfrastructure (CI) services to diverse  communities.
