NSF Innovation Corps - National Innovation Network Teams Program (I-CorpsTM Teams)
Proposal accepted anytime with an I-Corps Cognizant Program Officer's invitation. See II. PROGRAM DESCRIPTION - Requirements
Requirements: To be eligible to pursue funding under an I-Corps Teams award, applicants must have received a prior award from NSF (in a scientific or engineering field relevant to the proposed innovation) that is currently active or that has been active within five years from the date of the I-Corps Teams proposal submission. The lineage of the prior award extends to the PI, Co-PIs, Senior Personnel, Post Docs, Professional Staff or others who were supported under the award. The prior award could range from a modest single-investigator award to a large, distributed center and also could include awards involving students such as REU Sites, provided the technology developed under the grant has a clear link to the innovation being explored in the I-Corps project. If the proposed I-Corps Team is applying based on participation in a local or regional NSF-supported I-Corps training run by a current I-Corps Site or Node, a senior member of that I-Corps Site or Node staff must provide a recommendation for the team's consideration in the I-Corps Teams program. The technology underlying the effort will need to be consistent with NSF requirements on intellectual merit and represent a significant technical innovation.
