NSF have a call for White Papers on areas that are ripe for international network-to-network collaboration. A few of us think open science hardware is one of those so we’ve written a response and would appreciate your comments and names as supporters by 12pm ET on 30 Nov which will give twelve hours to consolidate for submission. NSF states that international researchers are welcome to be part of the white paper team, but the submission must be made by U.S.-based researchers.
This Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) invites individuals or groups of individuals from the U.S. research community to submit White Papers on topics in science, engineering, and/or STEM education that are ripe for international network-to-network collaboration. Topics should hold the potential to accelerate discovery and advance research outcomes.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) Office of International Science and Engineering (OISE) will use the white papers to inform OISE planning, including the potential need for a future program or program emphasis.
The deadline for white paper submission is: 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time November 30, 2017
