NSF seeks facility update proposals

The National Science Foundation is soliciting proposals to fund repairs and renovations at the nation's academic research facilities. The grant program is part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act; $200 million is designated for competitive grants to be administered by NSF as part of its Academic Research Infrastructure program. The goal is to ensure that existing research facilities are state-of-the-art, providing next-generation scientific infrastructure and better integrating researchers with such shared resources as remote instruments, remote research platforms, data repositories and national computing facilities. The solicitation invites proposals for projects of up to $10 million each. Release
