NSF encourages organizations from industry, academia, government, nonprofits, tribal, state and local governments, startups, venture capital firms, and communities of practice to form regional coalitions and submit proposals.

If you already have a cross-sector team that you plan to apply with for an NSF Engines award, we recommend inviting multiple team members with unique expertise areas, especially those from different organization types, to attend.

Please do not RSVP for more than 1-2 roadshow sessions (maximum 2). We want all interested community members to have the opportunity to attend. All sessions are open to the public so attend the session that works best for your schedule!

NOTE: While we encourage attendees from the listed states to join the roadshow listed for their state, please do not read these state selections as a definition of potential regions. Each proposing team will determine their own region of service when applying. Learn more by reviewing the Region of Service information online.
