Call for Workshop Proposals: Innovation, Culture, and Creativity


In 2024, the ICC project will fund workshops across the U.S. that explore support for innovation at the intersection of culture, creativity and technology. Supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and coordinated by a team from UCLA and UC Santa Barbara, the ICC Workshops will gather experts in arts, humanities, science, engineering, innovation studies, urban planning, and other disciplines to identify regional opportunities, as well as those for distributed communities-of-practice. Workshop results will be brought together in a national convening at the end of 2024. The national convening will identify common themes and actionable opportunities for NSF, particularly the Technology, Innovation, and Partnerships (TIP) directorate, which funds this effort.


Teams interested in organizing a workshop must submit a concept outline by February 16, 2024.  Organizations that have not historically received federal R&D support are encouraged to apply! 


Two informational webinars will be held ahead of the concept outline deadline:
