NIST posts Federal Funding Opportunity for community disaster resilience Center of Excellence

from IAEM

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has posted a Federal Funding Opportunity for a new research Center of Excellence to work with academia and industry on issues in community disaster resilience. NIST will select an awardee based on a merit competition to establish the center, which will be funded at up to $4 million a year for five years. NIST Centers of Excellence are meant to provide multidisciplinary research centers where experts from academia, industry and NIST can work together on specific high-priority research topics. The center will work on developing integrated, systems-based computational models to assess community infrastructure resilience and guide community-level resilience investment decisions. The proposed center also would develop a data management infrastructure, as well as tools and best practices to improve the collection of disaster and resilience data.
