Program Name

NSF - Campus Cyberinfrastructure (CC*)


Program Overview

Campuses today face challenges across multiple levels of cyberinfrastructure, where meeting the needs of scientific research and education goes far beyond the networking layer in capacity and services, and extends to computing, data services, secure and trustworthy systems, and especially human expertise, collaboration, and knowledge sharing. Recognition of the "data-driven" nature of scientific advancement and discovery has led to an increased focus in addressing the data challenges posed by the NSF research and education community. The CC* program invests in coordinated campus-level networking and cyberinfrastructure improvements, innovation, and engineering for science applications and distributed research projects.
