The NSF Cyberinfrastructure-TEAM (CI-TEAM) program will prepare current and future generations of scientists, engineers, and educators to use, support, deploy, develop, and design cyberinfrastructure and will foster inclusion in cyberinfrastructure activities of diverse groups of people and organizations, with particular emphasis on traditionally underrepresented groups.

The fiscal year 2006 expanded CI-TEAM solicitation seeks two types of project proposals, both aimed at the preparation of a diverse, cyberinfrastructure-savvy science and engineering workforce. Demonstration projects are exploratory in nature and may be somewhat limited in scope and scale. Demonstration projects have the potential to serve as pathfinders to effective larger-scale implementation activities in the future. Implementation projects are generally larger in scope or scale and draw on prior experience with the activities or the teams proposed. Implementation projects are expected to deliver sustainable learning and workforce development activities that complement ongoing NSF investment in cyberinfrastructure.

Both types of projects consist of collaborations with expertise in multiple disciplines and partnerships between academic institutions of higher learning, secondary schools, government, industry, professional societies, other not-for-profit organizations, and international partners as appropriate. Other key features of CI-TEAM projects involve leveraging existing or current development efforts in cyberinfrastructure technologies, open software standards, execution and evaluation plans, etc.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, June 22, 2007. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages, briefly summarizing 1) the type of project and anticipated participants; 2) vision and goals; 3) the CI-TEAM activities in terms of how they draw on and differ from existing, similar approaches; 2) any existing or current development efforts in cyberinfrastructure investments these activities leverage; and 4) qualitative and quantitative metrics for workforce development that will guide implementation and assess program effectiveness.


The CI-TEAM program will fund demonstration projects at levels up to $250,000 total with durations of one to two years and Implementation Projects funded at levels up to $1,000,000 total with durations of two to three years.
