RII Track-2 FEC
NSF Research Infrastructure Improvement Track-2 Focused EPSCoR Collaboration (RII Track-2 FEC) awards provide opportunities to build inter-jurisdictional collaborative teams of EPSCoR investigators in scientific interest areas consistent with NSF priorities. Projects must include researchers from at least two EPSCoR RII eligible jurisdictions. The collaborative research must demonstrate an integrated and comprehensive vision focused on discovery and include opportunities to build sustainable STEM capacity that embodies diversity.
For the FY 2021 RII Track-2 FEC competition, all proposals must promote collaborations among researchers in EPSCoR jurisdictions and emphasize the recruitment/development of diverse early-career faculty and STEM education and workforce development on the single topic: “Advancing climate change research and resilience capacity to expand opportunities for disproportionately affected communities.”
