43 teams were selected to develop an array of pilot projects across the country, focusing on two of the NSF’s ten Big Ideas: Harnessing the Data Revolution and the Future of Work. 10 teams advance to produce deliverables for innovative public-private partnerships, the first wave of subsequent participants who will expand and deepen the Program’s scope.
Converging Research. Accelerating Results.
Following participants from initial challenges to ultimate goals, we’ve developed, executed and managed an Awareness and Engagement Initiative targeted to the American public, potential Program contributors, prospective investors and partners across industry and government.
By leveraging state-of-the-art digital best practices to cost-effectively target and reach audiences in diverse and dynamic ways, we’ve built critical awareness, engaged key audiences and established a scalable, cost-effective communications model.
WHAT WE'VE ACCOMPLISHED
- Launched an integrated national outreach program
- Created a scalable communications model
- Grown awareness of mission and results
- Increased quantity and quality of solicitation respondents
- Engaged potential investors and partners
Program participants include IDEO, a global design and innovation leader.
Future Focused. Action Driven.
Integrating multidisciplinary research, human-centered design and team science, the NSF Convergence Accelerator is now driving innovative public-private partnerships between government, academia and industry. We’re all about speeding success.
