Description:       The National Science Foundation (NSF) Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) Research Infrastructure (CRI) program awards multiyear grants for institutional infrastructure and community infrastructure. The CRI program supports creation and enhancement of world-class research infrastructure to enable focused research agendas in computer, information science, and engineering. The program further seeks to ensure that individuals from a diverse range of academic institutions, including minority-serving and predominantly undergraduate institutions, have access to such infrastructure.

Institutional Infrastructure (II) Awards support creation of new (II-NEW) CISE research infrastructure or enhancement (II-EN) of existing CISE research infrastructure, to enable world-class CISE research opportunities at awardee and collaborating institutions. Proposed research infrastructure must enable compelling new research opportunities for the proposing Principal Investigator (PI) or team of PIs and associated students and collaborators. II proposals involving multiple investigators from one or more departments or institutions are welcome. II proposals led by or including two-year, predominantly undergraduate, or minority-serving institutions are especially encouraged.
