The Annual Supplement to the President's Budget (referred to as the Blue Book until FY 2005), which is required by law, summarizes the goals and objectives of the IT R&D Program and highlights many of the Program's accomplishments and plans.
The Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Program’s members and community extend their best wishes to Dr. Donald A.B. Lindberg on the occasion of his upcoming retirement from Federal service.
WSRD SSG Workshop VII
Federal-Commercial Spectrum Sharing Workshop:
Models, Application, and Impacts of
Incentives for Sharing

Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, NJ
The NCO NITRD is committed to the idea that data is a valuable national resource and a strategic asset. The NCO NITRD will strive to make appropriate data available, discoverable, and usable, in open machine-readable formats that can be retrieved, downloaded, indexed, and searched.
The CPS SSG is to coordinate programs, budgets, and policy recommendations for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) research and development (R&D).
Cyber Physical Systems Vision Statement
The NITRD Program provides a framework in which many Federal agencies come together to coordinate their networking and information technology (IT) research and development (R&D) efforts.
The Program operates under the aegis of the NITRD Subcommittee of the National Science and Technology Council's (NSTC) Committee on Technology. The Subcommittee, made up of representatives from each of NITRD's member agencies, provides overall coordination for NITRD activities.
Federal IT R&D, which launched and fueled the digital revolution, continues to drive innovation in scientific research, national security, communication, and commerce to sustain U.S. technological leadership. The NITRD agencies' collaborative efforts increase the overall effectiveness and productivity of these Federal R&D investments, leveraging strengths, avoiding duplication, and increasing interoperability of R&D products.

The NITRD Program has its focus on the following research areas:
The National Coordination Office (NCO) supports the national Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Program by providing technical expertise, planning and coordination and by serving as the Program's central point of contact.
The NCO continuously seeks to enhance its ability to be a catalyst for collaboration, exchange of information, and outreach to foster knowledge, methods, R&D, technology transfer, and innovation for U.S. global leadership in networking and information technology and its applications.
Accountability, dedication, integrity, and responsibility are the core values that underlie NCO's efforts to serve as a catalyst for the networking and information technology research and development community. More...

BigData SSG Updates: A national network of Big Data Regional Innovation Hubs
In November of 2014, NSF submitted a Request for Information on Accelerating the Big Data Innovation Ecosystem to the National Science Foundation about the establishment of a national network of Big Data Regional Innovation Hubs that will foster cross-sector collaborations and partnerships around Big Data. As a part of the next step in developing these Hubs, a series of day-long intensive design workshops (i.e. charrettes) are being held around the country in April 2015. More information...

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) (CPS joint solicitation)
The goal of the CPS program is to develop the core system science needed to engineer complex cyber-physical systems that people can use or interact with and depend upon. In 2015, NSF is working closely with multiple agencies of the federal government, including the U.S. Department of Homeland (DHS) Security Science and Technology Directorate (S&T), U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), U.S. DOT Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Joint Program Office (JPO), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD), and several National Institutes of Health (NIH) institutes and centers [including the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR), National Cancer Institute (NCI), and National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS)], to identify basic research needs in CPS common across multiple application domains, along with opportunities for accelerated transition to practice.
