This year, Quilt members will have the opportunity to get a head start on understanding science drivers and research cyberinfrastructure needs in preparation to participate in an upcoming National Science Foundation Campus Cyberinfrastructure Program solicitation. The Quilt’s 2020 Virtual Campus Cyberinfrastructure (CC*) Program seminar series will address the different facets of preparatory work that will build the foundation for major grant proposal areas. The seminar content will use prior NSF CC* solicitation areas as context enabling regional networks to submit their own grant(s) as well as supporting their member institutions submissions. Virtual seminar series participants will take away a list of tangible actions preparing them to construct a proposal and develop specific ideas on how to support member institutions’ grant submissions.
The first seminar, “Determining Your Desired Role within Your Community and Submitting a Regional or Planning Grant“, will focus on regional network’s role in our R&E cyberinfrastructure ecosystem, not only from an infrastructure standpoint, but also as a trusted technology expert for member institutions, particularly for under-resourced institutions. It also introduces regional network organizations to the “how-to” of enhancing their leadership positions within their communities by facilitating meaningful engagement with member institutions around the opportunities offered by the NSF CC* program.
Tuesday, July 14th – 3:00-4:30 pm ET kicks off this series of six dedicated seminars on the CC* Program. [Read the full description in The Quilt | Events]
