This CITAP solicitation is focused on the translation of innovative research CI software – such as system software, libraries, application codes,and software enabling data services. NSF seeks proposals that aim to design, test, and subsequently operate a pathway service within theACCESS program that manages and accelerates the translation of promising research CI software to production-quality services across theNSF advanced CI ecosystem in support of the NSF S&E research community. CITAP proposals are expected to create a new workflowprocess (represented notionally in Figure 1 below) within the ACCESS program that: (1) identifies novel CI software from diverse sources in astrongly community-informed way; (2) establishes an open and merit-based process for selecting and prioritizing/sequencing which of theidentified innovations are of highest and most immediate value to users of the advanced CI ecosystem and can be feasibly translated toproduction level and made available for use by researchers using ACCESS resources; and (3) establishes an operational process thattranslates innovations into production services, including creation of partnerships where necessary to address each of the technical challengesand intellectual property (IP) considerations faced when integrating novel CI software within the advanced CI ecosystem.

Submission Process

Limited submissions MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research.

If interested in applying for this opportunity, email a two-page project abstract, include at top the project title, PI, and list of key collaborators, and a 2-3 page CV/biosketch for the PI (SCiENcv preferred) by the INTERNAL DEADLINE above to Julie Morris at
