12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

This workshop will provide a brief overview of the NSF’s TIP directorate and its research funding opportunities. Established in 2022, the TIP directorate is the agency’s first new directorate in over 30 years. TIP is a crosscutting platform that collaboratively integrates with NSF's existing directorates and fosters partnerships — with government, industry, nonprofits, civil society and communities of practice — to leverage, energize and rapidly bring to society use-inspired research and innovation.  At this event you will hear about the work done across the directorate, focusing on the EPIIC, ExLENT, and POSE programs.
