Mid-Scale Research Infrastructure: An NSF Overview

Mid-scale Research Infrastructure is an integral component of NSF’s effort to meet the research community’s needs for modern research infrastructure that supports priority science and engineering research and promotes U.S. scientific and engineering leadership, globally. This session was intended to articulate the Agency’s motivation, approach, and commitment to this level of investment that bridges the gap between Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) and Major Facilities investments. Both foundation-wide and Directorate/Division-specific programs, at this scale of investment, will be discussed. In addition, this session summarized the concepts and flexibilities in Section 5 of the Research Infrastructure Guide that are intended to support these important programs and lay the groundwork for subsequent workshop sessions.
