NSF Innovations at the Nexus of Food, Energy and Water Systems (INFEWS)
New Opportunity? Yes
Funding Organization: National Science Foundation
Letter of Intent Required: No
The INFEWS program seeks to support research that conceptualizes FEW systems, incorporating social and behavioral processes, physical processes, natural processes, biological processes, and cyber-components. Investigations of these systems may generate discoveries that cannot emerge from research on food or energy or water systems alone. The goal of this program is to catalyze well-integrated, convergent research to transform understanding of the FEW Nexus as integrated social, engineering, physical, and natural systems in order to improve system function and management, address system stress, increase resilience, and ensure sustainability.
