Mathematical Sciences Research Institutes

About this event

This webinar will cover the program solicitation (NSF 17-553)  and requirements for submission of proposals to the Mathematical Sciences Research Institutes program. There will be a question-and-answer session following the discussion.

Mathematical Sciences Research Institutes are national resources that aim to advance research in the mathematical sciences through programs supporting discovery and dissemination of knowledge in mathematics and statistics and enhancing connections to related fields in which the mathematical sciences can play important roles. Institute activities help focus the attention of some of the best mathematical minds on problems of particular importance and timeliness. Institutes are also community resources that involve a broad segment of U.S.-based mathematical sciences researchers in their activities. The goals of the Mathematical Sciences Research Institutes program include advancing research in the mathematical sciences, increasing the impact of the mathematical sciences in other disciplines, and expanding the talent base engaged in mathematical research in the United States.

The NSF Division of Mathematical Sciences invites proposals for projects that contribute to this important, influential activity.

The program is open to proposals for new institute projects from U.S. sites as well as renewal proposals from any of the U.S.-based institutes that have had previous funding from NSF.
