The latest funding opportunities of the National Science Foundation (NSF) will accelerate its climate research efforts. Climate is the newest challenge NSF will take on through its Convergence Accelerator, a program that builds upon research from multiple disciplines to help solve national, societal challenges.

  • Doug Maughan, Office Head for the NSF Convergence Accelerator, said his team collects ideas from multiple sources, selects ideas with the highest potential impact and holds workshops to get community input, which becomes the content for solicitations.
  • Maughan said Convergence Accelerator differs from the norm in that it requires non-academic participation on teams and incorporates user engagement.
  • Maughan said his office hopes attendants of the Convergence Accelerator expo in July will find projects they are interested in and participate as customers or resource providers.
