Idaho NSF EPSCoR I-CREWS Seed Funding Opportunity #1
May 30th, 2024

This Seed Funding program is part of Idaho’s multi-year (2023-2028) statewide National Science Foundation (NSF) Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) Track-1 Research Infrastructure Improvement (RII) award, “Idaho Community-engaged Resilience for Energy-Water (E-W) Systems (I-CREWS).” The project is highly aligned with Idaho’s Higher Education Research Strategic Plan. Here the term Energy-water (E-W) Systems refers to the intersection between the systems, consisting of the physical infrastructure, data/information/knowledge, the people, laws and policy, as well as the fuel and water that flows or is in reserve. Includes interdependent power and water systems tied to the physical infrastructure for generation, transmission, distribution and use of power and water along with governance and management practices, knowledge flows, and effects on end users. I-CREWS represents a statewide collaborative community-engaged academic research and education program aligned with areas supported by NSF. Participants work collaboratively across institutions on basic research; integration of science disciplines; integration of research, education, and workforce development; and fostering integration of science, communities, and stakeholders.
