About the series
The NSF Directorate for Engineering will hold a webinar on April 29, 2021, at 1:30 P.M. ET on the new Engineering Research Initiation (ERI) program.
The ERI programs aims to support new investigators as they begin their research programs and advance in their careers as researchers, educators, and innovators. The program will help NSF build engineering research capacity across the nation by investing in new academic investigators who have yet to receive research funding from Federal Agencies.
This funding opportunity also aims to broaden the base of investigators involved in engineering research and therefore is limited to investigators that are not affiliated with “very high research activity” R1 institutions (according to the Carnegie Classification). Proposers may submit proposals only in engineering research areas supported by programs within the Divisions of the Directorate for Engineering.
During the webinar, NSF staff will present information about the solicitation and will answer questions from attendees.
