NSF Convergence Accelerator Funding Opportunity

The NSF Convergence Accelerator has issued a new funding opportunity for three new research track topics aligned to the 2022 cohort. Researchers and innovators have two submission pathways to submit their proposals: Solicitation, NSF-22-583 and Broad Agency Announcement (BAA), NSFBAA-CA22-02.

Research is often driven by a compelling societal or scientific challenge; however, it may take the researcher community years to develop a solution. To deliver tangible solutions that have a nation-wide societal impact and at a more accelerated pace, the NSF Convergence Accelerator brings together multiple disciplines, expertise, and cross- cutting partnerships to develop solutions through a convergence research approach and innovation processes.

Researchers and innovators from academia, industry, government, nonprofit, and other organizations are encouraged to submit a letter of intent (required) and full proposal.

Letter of Intent (required): May 31, 2022
Full Proposal Deadline: July 20, 2022
*Full proposals are due 5 p.m. submitter’s local time.
