Advanced Cyberinfrastructure Coordination Ecosystem: Services & Support (ACCESS) Program Webinar

About this event

NSF, through the Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (OAC), has published a vision that calls for the broad availability and innovative use of an agile, integrated, robust, trustworthy and sustainable CI ecosystem that can drive new thinking and transformative discoveries in all areas of S&E research and education. In support of this vision, NSF has released two solicitations as part of the Advanced Cyberinfrastructure Coordination Ecosystem: Services & Support (ACCESS) Program.


NSF 21-555 (ACCESS) expects to fund five (5) awards for five (5) Cyberinfrastructure Coordination Service Tracks: (1) Allocation Services; (2) End User Support Services; (3) Operations & Integration Services; (4) Monitoring & Measurement Services; and (5) Technology Translation Services. Together, these services are expected to provide a seamless experience for an increasing breadth of research users across a highly performing innovative array of national computational computing resources.


NSF 21-556 (ACCESS-ACO) expects to fund one award for an ACCESS Coordination Office (ACO) to support the collective and coordinated operation of the five CI coordination services. Specifically, the ACO will provide coordination and support services and staffing for top-level coordination and communications among the ACCESS awardees and with the public, including support for top-level inter-awardee governance, coordination of an external advisory board to the ACCESS awardees, maintenance of the top-level landing page of the ACCESS website, and coordinated community-building activities.


This webinar will orient potential proposers to the ACCESS program, discuss both solicitations, and provide a Q&A session to help lead to the submission of high-quality proposals.
