NSF Smart and Connected Communities (S&CC) program solicitation

Deadline: January 30 2018

Updated: December 17 2017

The goal of the NSF Smart and Connected Communities (S&CC) program solicitation is to accelerate the creation of the scientific and engineering foundations that will enable smart and connected communities to bring about new levels of economic opportunity and growth, safety and security, health and wellness, and overall quality of life. This goal will be achieved through integrative research projects that pair advances in technological and social dimensions with meaningful community engagement.

It will include regular research grants ($750,000 to $3,000,000, up to 4 years). This program differs from other NSF cross-directorate research programs because it requires a collaboration with one or more physical communities (e.g., cities).
