Transforming Science Through Cyberinfrastructure - NSF's Blueprint for a National Cyberinfrastructure Ecosystem for Science and Engineering in the 21st Century

Twenty-first century science and engineering (S&E) research is being transformed by the increasing availability and scales of computation and data. The national cyberinfrastructure (CI) ecosystem has thus become a key catalyst for discovery and innovation and now plays a critical role in ensuring US leadership in S&E, economic competitiveness and national security, consistent with NSF's mission.

The vision and blueprint presented in this document have been developed by the NSF Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (OAC) on behalf of NSF based on a synthesisof multiple community inputs through advisory bodies, requests for information (RFIs), workshops and conferences, and national initiatives.
