NSF Smart and Connected Communities Solicitation

Preliminary Proposal Deadline Date: November 30, 2016
Full Proposal Deadline Date: February 16, 2017

NSF’s Smart & Connected Communities (S&CC) solicitation invites strongly interdisciplinary, integrative research and research capacity-building activities that will improve understanding of smart and connected communities and lead to discoveries that enable sustainable change to enhance community functioning.

Note that this is substantially oriented to engineers and computer scientists, so learning-oriented proposals might need a strong partnership with those groups.

Also, a new Dear Colleague Letter: Opportunities for Research in Smart & Connected Communities summarizes the types of funding opportunities and activities that NSF envisions for FY 2017.
