NSF Centers of Research Excellence in
Science and Technology Program: Goals


Enhance research capabilities of MSIs through
establishments of centers that integrate education
and research


Promote


Development of new knowledge


Enhancement of research productivity of individual
faculty


Expanded presence of students historically
underrepresented in STEM disciplines

Overview


The
technical infrastructure
,
organizational practices
, and
social norms
required to
collectively provide for the
smooth operation of work in
which interactions may be
distributed across

time

and
geographic location
.



To create a CI
-
enabled
synergistic environment to
advance innovative and
interdisciplinary research in
science, engineering, and
education.


To train and educate a new
generation of interdisciplinary
scientists who can effectively use
CI
-
based software services and
middleware and tools.
