The I/UCRC Fundamental Research Supplement (FRS) program invites requests for fundamental research from NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers (I/UCRC). This supplemental opportunity is intended to support fundamental research, an activity designed to broaden scientific and technical knowledge not directly linked to current center research. The supplement provides the opportunity for an I/UCRC to conduct fundamental research to better position themselves as leaders for emerging areas that could benefit the industries that they serve. Please see the "Related URL" and "Related NSF Documents" below for the most current FRS opportunity letter.
