National Nano Infrastructure Network - feedback requested
I wrote before about the saga of the NNIN and how painful the outcome was this year - no awards made, after thousands of person-hours invested on the writing and reviewing of proposals. Well, NSF is requesting input, in part because they want guidance on structuring the new solicitation to come out this autumn. So, please give your input if you're in the US and think this kind of support for shared infrastructure is valuable. By the way, if it seems like NSF had already gone through an exercise like this before the last solicitation (the one where they didn't fund anyone), you're right - they even had a two-day workshop and produced a report.
