NSF Innovation Corps - National Innovation Network Nodes Program (I-Corps Nodes)

NSF 16-53

I-Corps Nodes (from both Tracks 1 and 2) must contribute to the National Innovation Network in the following three ways:

Level 1 Contribution - I-Corps Node Training:

I-Corps Nodes will demonstrate the capacity to deliver an innovation-enhancing training program based on the hypothesis/validation "Customer Discovery" curriculum used to support NSF I-Corps teams (see www.nsf.gov/i-corps). I-Corps Nodes will nurture and support teams that are transitioning their ideas, devices, processes or other intellectual activities into the marketplace.

Level 2 Contribution - I-Corps Node Infrastructure:

Proposers are expected to identify models, to be leveraged for broad dissemination and implementation, of effective innovation content, curricula, and teaching/learning practices - detailing the specific activities, goals and measureable outcomes that will be associated with the proposed efforts. Proposers should consider how such activities will benefit the innovation network and how other nodes would be able to utilize/leverage their prospective Level 2 contributions.

Level 3 Contribution - I-Corps Node Research:

I-Corps Nodes will identify and pursue longer-term (3+ year) research and development projects that meet the goals of the I-Corps program. Proposers will identify teams or individuals for these projects that are inclusive of faculty and researchers from the node institution(s). These teams or individuals can work independently or in collaboration with I-Corps instructors or I-Corps staff. At least one of the projects must be led by faculty or researchers who are not I-Corps instructors or I-Corps staff personnel.
