NSF Announces Research Initiative in Support of PATH
The Engineering Directorate of the National Science Foundation (NSF) announces a research initiative in support of the Federal Partnership for Advancing Technology in Housing, (PATH). The objectives of PATH are to improve the quality, affordability, durability, environmental performance, and energy efficiency of today's new and existing homes; strengthen the technology infrastructure of the United States; and help create the next generation of American housing. These goals are extraordinarily ambitious. The purpose of this announcement is to support fundamental research that contributes to the achievement of the PATH objectives. This initiative will focus on the application of a broad array of engineering sciences and technologies-with particular emphasis on the three technology "portfolios" identified by PATH's Roadmapping efforts and on unique local partnerships for improving housing innovation-and will encourage cooperative and interdisciplinary activities.
