Revolutionary means radically, suddenly, or completely new; producing fundamental, structural change; or going outside of or beyond existing norms and principles.” For more information  and deadline, see solicitation NSF 19-614. and register for an informational webinar on October 10. The webinar will be recorded and available for review on the program webpage. Researchers are encouraged to contact Program Director Edward Berger ( before committing to write a proposal.
