About this event
This informational webinar will provide an overview presentation and answers to questions on the new National Science Foundation (NSF) program entitled “Engineering for Civil Infrastructure (ECI),” (NSF 17-073Y). The ECI program is a core research program within NSF’s Directorate for Engineering, Division of Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation (CMMI). The ECI program represents a new and integrated vision for fundamental research to underpin transformative innovations for the built environment that are resilient, economical, and adaptable to enhance national prosperity and societal benefits. In support of this vision, the ECI program replaces CMMI’s Engineering for Natural Hazard (ENH), Geotechnical Engineering and Materials (GEM), and Structural and Architectural Engineering and Materials (SAEM) programs. ECI will also support research in construction engineering that is compatible with this vision.
