NSF: Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI) Network Coordination Office, Computational Modeling and Simulation Center, and Post-Disaster, Rapid Response Research Facility NSF 5-598
The planned outcome of this solicitation is to establish the final three awards for the NSF-supported Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI) - Network Coordination Office (NCO), Computational Modeling and Simulation Center (SimCenter), and Post-Disaster, Rapid Response Research (RAPID) Facility.
During 2015 - 2019, NHERI will be a distributed, multi-user, national facility to provide the natural hazards engineering community with access to research infrastructure (earthquake and wind engineering experimental facilities, cyberinfrastructure, computational modeling and simulation tools, and research data), coupled with education and community outreach activities. NHERI will enable research and educational advances that can contribute knowledge and innovation for the nation's civil infrastructure and communities to prevent natural hazard events from becoming societal disasters.
USC may not submit more than one proposal as the lead institution in any one of the following three proposal categories:(1) Network Coordination Office (NCO),(2) Computational Modeling and Simulation Center (SimCenter), and (3)Post-Disaster, Rapid Response Research (RAPID) Facility.
Your application submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please send a two page abstract via email to Richard White (
