Engineering Research Centers Q&A Session

About this event

The NSF Directorate for Engineering will host a virtual Q&A about the Gen-4 Engineering Research Centers (ERC) program solicitation (22-580) on August 4, 2022, at 12:00 PM Eastern.

The Engineering Research Centers (ERC) program supports high-risk, high-payoff research centers focused on advancing engineered systems technology and education through multidisciplinary, cross-sector partnerships.

This virtual session will provide a brief overview of key FAQs and focus primarily on answering attendee questions. Attendees are encouraged to watch the June 27 webinar recording (which will not be replayed during this second event), and come with questions prepared!

ERC Program Consultation Scheduling 
The ERC program team is providing 20-minute timeslots for optional preliminary proposal consultations. This consultation is not intended to evaluate technical ideas, but to address program fit and other program-related questions.

Prior to the meeting, teams must provide two documents: a 1-page summary of the ERC concept and engineered system, and the accompanying 3-plane chart. These documents should be emailed to nsferc@nsf.gov
