The goal of this webinar is to bring awareness to this exciting opportunity to build innovation ecosystems throughout the U.S.

The webinar consists of two parts:

  • In the first hour (1-2 p.m. EDT), the NSF Engines program team will present.
  • In the second hour (2-3 p.m. EDT), there will be a live Q&A with the program team.

NSF encourages organizations from industry, academia, government, nonprofits, civil society and communities of practice to form regional coalitions and submit proposals.


Prior to the event, submit questions for the Q&A by emailing engines@nsf.gov. There is also the option to ask questions live during the event.


Live captioning will be provided for the webinar. For other disability accommodations, please email engines@nsf.gov as soon as possible, but no later than May 10, 2022.
