Planning Grants for Engineering Research Centers, NSF

| 05:00 PM - 05:00 PM

The ERC planning grants are intended to build capacity and increase preparedness in the engineering community for center-scale, high-risk/high-payoff convergent and socially relevant engineering research. The ERC program is placing greater emphasis on high-risk/high-payoff research, larger societal impact, convergent research approaches, engagement of stakeholder communities, and adoption of team science in team formation. The PI must be an engineering faculty whose main appointment is in an engineering department/school/college who has not previously been awarded an ERC Planning Grant as a PI. Co-PIs may be from any department.
