Connecting with Historically Black Colleges and Universities on a Proposed New NSF Directorate

About this event

The National Science Foundation (NSF) invites administrators and faculty from Historically Black Colleges and Universities to participate in a discussion about the concept of a new NSF Directorate for Technology, Innovation and Partnerships (TIP) that was included in the fiscal year (FY) 2022 President’s Budget Request for NSF. This discussion will be held virtually on February 24, 2022, from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET.

A key goal for the proposed TIP directorate is to serve the societal and economic needs of every part of the U.S. To this end, NSF believes contributions from diverse organization types, including Historically Black Colleges and Universities, are vital to realizing the mission of the proposed directorate and its potential new programs.

Meeting Details:

At this two-hour event, NSF will share information about the President’s Budget Request for TIP, including the proposed Regional Innovation Accelerators (RIA) program, and participants will be invited to join small-group discussions about the benefits, opportunities, and challenges that TIP and RIAs present for their institutions and the communities they serve. We will also discuss ways to foster deep, meaningful, and beneficial partnerships between academic institutions and other private and public stakeholders; support use-inspired research and development; nurture an inclusive culture of innovation; create sustainable innovation ecosystems; and grow the future science and engineering workforce.

We are excited to meet with you and hope you will be able to join us.

This event will be capped at 80 participants to optimize an exchange of ideas. Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
