NSF Convergence Accelerator Features Two Research Tracks
The National Science Foundation’s Convergence Accelerator is speeding research and discovery into practice by announcing a new funding opportunity, NSF Convergence Accelerator Phase I and II for the 2021 Cohort, featuring two research track topics — the “Networked Blue Economy” and “Trust & Authenticity in Communication Systems.”
Although different, both tracks require funded teams to accelerate ideas into solutions and at a rapid pace. During phase one, a nine-month planning effort, selected teams are to participate in the program’s innovation curriculum designed to strengthen each team’s convergence approach and to further develop the solution concept toward phase two.
