Cyberinfrastructure Training, Education, Advancement, and Mentoring for Our 21st Century Workforce (CI-TEAM)
The Research Office, Incentive Programs is requesting Letters of Intent for the National Science Foundation – Cyberinfrastructure Training, Education, Advancement, and Mentoring for Our 21st Century Workforce (CI-TEAM) program.
Research Office Letter of Intent submission deadline: Monday, February 14, 2011
Information: Debbie Delmore at firstname.lastname@example.org or (541) 737-8390
Limit Summary: An organization may submit a maximum of two (2) CI-TEAM proposals as the lead organization.
In an effort to provide the highest level of excellence and viability for funding, a review process will be put in place if more than two (2) proposals are submitted. The finalists will be asked to represent Oregon State University and to submit their proposals to the NSF-CI-TEAM program.
The CI-TEAM program supports projects that integrate science and engineering research and education activities that range from local activities to global-scale efforts, as appropriate, to promote, leverage and utilize cyberinfratstucture systems, tools and services.
This solicitation seeks three types of project proposals, all aimed at the preparation of a diverse, cyberinfrastructure-savvy science and engineering workforce:
- Demonstration Projects are exploratory in nature and may be somewhat limited in scope and scale. Demonstration Projects have the potential to serve as exemplars for effective larger-scale implementation and diffusion activities in the future.
- Implementation Projects are generally larger in scope or scale and draw on prior experience with the activities or the teams proposed.
- Diffusion Projects are expected to inform and engage broad national and/or international audiences to build upon educational research and project outcomes to deploy promising educational strategies through cyberinfrastructure resources, models, and/or technologies.
Implementation or Diffusion Projects are expected to deliver sustainable learning and workforce development activities that complement ongoing NSF investment in cyberinfrastructure.
Guidance for preparation of Letter of Intent to the Research Office:
- Title of Project
- Type of Project (Demonstration, Implementation, or Diffusion)
- Project Description:
- Brief description of the project’s vision and goals
- Describe how the project will develop a cyber-ready workforce
- Plans and strategies for increasing participation of traditionally underrepresented groups
- Brief description of how the project will be executed
