https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2017/nsf17065/nsf17065.jsp

Updated: April 03 2017

Growing Convergence Research at the National Science Foundation (NSF) is one of 10 Big Ideas for Future NSF Investments (https://www.nsf.gov/about/congress/reports/nsf_big_ideas.pdf). NSF seeks to highlight the value of convergence as a process for catalyzing new research directions and advancing scientific discovery and innovation. This Dear Colleague Letter (https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2017/nsf17065/nsf17065.jsp) describes an initial set of opportunities to explore Convergence approaches within four of the research-focused NSF Big Ideas:

- Harnessing the Data Revolution for 21st Century Science and Engineering
- Navigating the New Arctic
- The Quantum Leap: Leading the Next Quantum Revolution
- Work at the Human-Technology Frontier: Shaping the Future
