  • The NDN project team has submitted a Letter of Intent to the NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research (I/UCRC) program, to explore this as a potential evolutionary path for the NDN consortium, as discussed at the last consortium meeting. According to the RFP, this program develops long-term partnerships among industry, academe, and government. “The Centers are catalyzed by an investment from the [NSF] and are primarily supported by industry Center members, with NSF taking a supporting role in the development and evolution of the Center.” See more information on the program. The project team plans to submit a planning grant to the July 11, 2016 deadline and encourages current and prospective members to contact us with any questions, concerns, ideas and expressions of interest about the program. We have received positive feedback from NSF to encourage the planning proposal submission.
