The National Science Foundation Partnerships for Innovation: Building Innovation Capacity program supports academe-industry partnerships to carry out research to advance, adapt, and integrate technology(ies) into a specified, human-centered smart service system. The selected service system should function as a technology test bed. These translational research projects require additional effort to integrate the technology into a “smart” service system, one that can identify, learn, adapt, and make decisions. It is essential that this research incorporate human factors considerations to assure the system’s efficacy. The research tasks in turn might generate additional discoveries inspired by the interaction of humans and technology.
Two proposal webinars will be held on September 7th and 7th.
