Department Information Technology Research Initiative


September 2000

What is the Information Technology Research (ITR) initiative?
The National Science Foundation (NSF) today announced its first grants under the new $90 million Information Technology Research (ITR) initiative. The awards, which will spur fundamental research and innovative applications of IT, are a step toward building on U.S. leadership in this area of growing importance to the economy.

Selected from over 1,400 proposals, the newly funded activities will promote IT-driven science and engineering. Included are 62 large projects that will average $1 million per year for three to five years, involving 41 institutions in 22 states. Another 148 smaller projects will each total $500,000 or less for up to three years, involving 81 institutions in 32 states.

For more information, visit the National Science Foundation.

What faculty at the University of Colorado are involved?
There are two ways that faculty can be involved in ITR awards --- they can either be principal investigators of an award, meaning they play the organizing role in the proposed work, or they can be Co-PIs. In each case, the success of the ITR award is attributable to all the participants.

The following is a list of the awards, totaling over $14.5M, in which faculty at the University of Colorado are involved:
