NSF Regional Innovation Engines (NSF Engines) Internal Screening

The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) is pleased to announce the internal approval process for the NSF Engines program, for which UConn may submit one proposal.

The NSF Engines program will require wide-scale collaboration on a single broad topic, together with deep involvement from a network of partners in industry, government, community groups, and other educational institutions.  The Engine will have three core functions: 1) use-inspired research and development; 2) translation of innovations to practice; and 3) workforce development to grow and sustain regional innovation.

This approval process is designed to identify approaches that have strong merit and to facilitate the formation of robust teams and the development of concepts based on them.  To that end, we are calling for the submission of “Notifications of Interest” (NOIs) from UConn/UConn Health faculty with an idea that fits in with NSF’s vision for this program (details regarding submission are below).

The NOI is the entry point into a collaborative process that will lead to the approval of concept outlines for submission to NSF.  That process will include the following steps/timeline

  • 5/24/22 – Submission of the notification of interest
  • 5/25/22 – NOI Submitters should register for and attend the NSF Engines Roadshow virtual event that includes Connecticut. This event will include a forum for asking questions, but it will also include an opportunity to meet potential industry and community partners interested in similar topics.
  • 5/31/22 – By this date, the OVPR will have reviewed and categorized all NOIs submitted, grouping efforts with similar or overlapping topic areas together. The NOIs received in each topical group will be shared with all submitters within that group to encourage combination of efforts.  NSF has indicated that it expects that teams with similar topics in the same region will work together rather than compete.
  • 6/6/22 – Deadline for draft concept outlines (following NSF Guidelines). Concept outlines will be reviewed for adherence to NSF guidelines/expectations for the program and to ensure that there is minimal topical overlap among UConn/UConn Health submissions.  Draft concept outlines must be approved by the OVPR in order to be eligible for submission to NSF.
  • 6/10/22 – Approvals for submission sent. All approved concepts will be published internally (behind NetID login) to allow for other interested parties within the University to join approved efforts or to commit resources.
  • 6/30/22 – NSF deadline for the submission of concept outlines for type 1 and type 2 proposals. NSF will give approval or rejection by August 1.  NSF will also publish all approved concept outlines to encourage collaboration among teams in a region.

Note: Submitters should present their own vision for what an Innovation Engine in our region could accomplish, but also be prepared to combine their ideas with the ideas of others working in similar topic areas.  All NOI submitters are highly encouraged to view NSF’s informational webinar (from 5/17/22) and to review both the BAA and FAQ document in detail prior to submission.

While UConn may only submit one Engine proposal as lead, we are free to participate as a partner on other proposals.  We ask that all teams that are considering participating in other proposals as partner also complete the notification of interest form to facilitate communication and coordination.

All investigators who wish to participate in this opportunity must submit a notification of interest form through the UConn Quest Portal by the due date listed below.  Teams must be selected and approved by the OVPR to be eligible to submit to this opportunity.
