This Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) is the first funding opportunity for the NSF Regional Innovation Engines (NSF Engines) program, a bold new initiative of the National Science Foundation that will create regional-scale innovation ecosystems throughout the United States. Funding for this program will prioritize regions across the Nation without well-established innovation ecosystems. Engines in regions of the country where prospective ecosystem members exist, but where innovation activities are only loosely connected, are of particular interest. Due to the complexity and scope of this program, RII is Institutionally Coordinating the submission of Concept Outlines to NSF. The internal pre-proposal will include an abstract due at the end of May, followed by a pitch session to RII leadership in early June. Additional details for the internal competition are available on UA Competition Space. Contact RDS with questions.
