Many people who have considered applying to the National Science Foundation for funding are familiar with programs in specific discipliines, such as the Social and Behavioral Sciences
, but one of the most exciting, fairly recent programs that NSF has launched is around the Science of Science and Innovation Policy (SciSIP). SciSIP has an interest in funding quality research and data infrastructure development and has funded some projects which are squarely in the innovation and entrepreneurship space such as the STARS database
. Their current solicitation
has a deadline of September 9, 2009, but the hard work to develop proposals should probably begin right now for those interested.
