Transformative research
involves ideas,
discoveries, or tools that radically change our
understanding of an important existing scientific
or engineering concept or educational practice or
leads to the creation of a new paradigm or field
of science, engineering, or education. Such
research challenges current understanding or
provides pathways to new frontiers.



Intellectual Merit criterion
:

To what extent does the proposed activity
suggest and explore creative, original, or
potentially transformative concepts
?

Steve Johnson:
Where Good Ideas Come From
:


Most innovations are result of collaborative effort hatched in academic
labs or corporate R&D departments rather than in some isolated
genius’s garage



How
can you collaborate?

Smart Health & Wellbeing (SHW)


Multiple NSF Directorates participating: CISE, SBE, ENG


Vision
: seek improvements in safe, effective, efficient, equitable, and
patient
-
centered,

individualized, and evidence
-
based

health and wellness services through
innovations in computer and information science and engineering.



Scope
:

Smart Health and Wellbeing especially encourages the research community to pursue
bold ideas that go beyond and/or combine traditional areas of computer and
information science and engineering
.

Projects submitted to this program should be motivated by specific challenges in
health and wellbeing.


The Smart Health and Wellbeing program aims to facilitate large
-
scale discoveries
that yield long
-
term, transformative impact in how we treat illness and maintain our
health.

http://www.nsf.gov/cise/news/mail_lists.jsp


CISE has implemented a mail distribution list to notify the Computer and Information
Science and Engineering community of items we think may be of interest. The
postings will be infrequent and brief and will typically point to further information on
the CISE or NSF website. This may duplicate some of the items contained in NSF
Custom News Service but will also contain items not always available there::


Announcements


Vacancy notices


CISE webcasts of interest


Meeting notices, workshops


News items, etc.



To subscribe: send a message to:

with no text in
the subject or message body.

If you no longer wish to be included on the distribution list, you can elect to be
removed from the list at any time. Instructions for unsubscribing will be included at
the end of each list message.
