Innovations at the Nexus of Food, Energy, and Water Systems (INFEWS)

The INFEWS program seeks to support research that conceptualizes food, energy, and water (FEW) systems broadly and inclusively. While incorporating social and behavioral processes (such as decision making and governance), physical processes (such as built infrastructure and new technologies for more efficient resource utilization), natural processes (such as biogeochemical and hydrologic cycles), biological processes (such as agroecosystem structure and productivity), and cyber-components (such as sensing, networking, computation and visualization for decision-making and assessment). Investigations of these complex systems may produce discoveries that cannot emerge from research on food or energy or water systems alone. It is the synergy among these components in the context of sustainability that will open innovative science and engineering pathways to produce new knowledge, novel technologies, and innovative predictive capabilities.

NSF: Environmental Engineering

The goal of the Environmental Engineering program is to support potentially transformative fundamental research that applies scientific and engineering principles to 1) prevent or minimize solid, liquid, and gaseous discharges of pollution to soil, water, and air; 2) mitigate the ecological and human-health impacts of such releases by smart/adaptive/reactive amendments or manipulation of the environment, and 3) remediate polluted environments through engineered chemical, biological, and/or geo-physical processes.

  • Released: January 2018

    Deadline: October 22, 2018

    Eligibility: Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs), Non-profit, Non-academic Organizations, For-profit Organizations, State and Local Governments, Unaffiliated Individuals, Foreign organizations, and Other Federal Agencies.
