NSF Engines Roadshow is Here, Register Now!

The National Science Foundation’s Regional Innovations Engines, or NSF Engines, will be hosting a nationwide virtual roadshow centered around the program’s Broad Agency Announcement funding opportunity. The goals of the roadshows—which are regionally focused virtual events—are to build awareness about the NSF Engines program, share best practices, and facilitate connections between innovators in regions across the country.

During each roadshow event, participants will:

  • Receive a brief overview of the NSF Engines program
  • Hear from a panel of leading innovation and technology ecosystem builders and experts from across the country
  • Join interactive breakout rooms to collaborate with fellow innovators from their region and jumpstart conversations about potential collaboration opportunities

We hope these roadshows will be a jumping-off point for your region's future discussions about developing a cohesive NSF Engine application.
