Centers for Chemical Innovation
Supports research centers focused on major, long-term fundamental chemical research challenges. The CCI Program is a two-phase program. Both phases are described in this solicitation. Phase I CCIs receive significant resources to develop the science, management and broader impacts of a major research center before requesting Phase II funding. The FY 2022 Phase I CCI competition is open to projects in all fields supported by the Division of Chemistry. The NSF Division of Chemistry particularly encourages fundamental chemistry projects aligned with articulated budget priorities, including advanced manufacturing, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, climate research and sustainability, and quantum information science.
