Wireless Innovation between Finland and the US: The US National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Academy of Finland have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on research cooperation in the area of wireless networking. This MOU provides an overarching framework to encourage collaboration between the US and Finland research communities, and sets out the principles by which jointly supported activities may be developed.


With this solicitation, NSF’s Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) and the Academy of Finland continue a joint program in the area of wireless networking, known as Wireless Innovation between Finland and US (WiFiUS) that provides for an international collaboration arrangement whereby US researchers may receive funding from NSF and Finnish collaborators may receive funding from the Academy of Finland to pursue joint projects.


Specifically, this solicitation continues the previous WiFiUS effort (see <a href="http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2014/nsf14563/nsf14563.htm" target="_blank">NSF 14-563</a>), encouraging new and closer research collaborations, and addressing compelling research challenges on novel frameworks, architectures, protocols, theories, methodologies, and tools for the design and analysis of robust and highly dependable wireless communication systems and networks, particularly in light of the emerging Internet of Things (IoT).


This NSF solicitation parallels an equivalent Academy of Finland solicitation. Proposals submitted pursuant to this solicitation must describe joint research with Finnish counterparts who are requesting funding separately under the Academy of Finland solicitation.
