IPaT Research Reminder: Importance of Timely Grant Closure

Extramural funding is a vital element in a researcher’s academic career; it provides a means of supporting research goals and aspirations. This type of funding aids researchers in the discovery and development of cutting-edge technology and helps to advance current, life-altering research. Although it's not always easy to measure the incalculable benefit of extramural funding to the research, there are administrative responsibilities which the researcher or research team must observe. One such responsibility is the timely closure of the grant. Dr. Mike Lauer, the National Institutes of Health's (NIH) Deputy Director for Extramural Research, writes about this topic—including the implications of non-compliance of the grant's closure—in his latest issue of “Open Mike.”

NIST Public Safety Innovation Accelerator Program (PSIAP) - Point Cloud City

The NIST Public Safety Innovation Accelerator Program is seeking applications from U.S. state, local and tribal governments to create a model ‘Point Cloud City’. Successful applicants will receive funding to generate an extensive catalog of annotated 3D indoor point clouds that can be used by industry, academia, and government to advance research and development in the areas of indoor mapping, localization and navigation for public safety, as well as to demonstrate the potential value of ubiquitous indoor positioning and location-based information. Recipients will also participate in the NIST Global Cities Team Challenge initiative as the lead for an Action Cluster.
