Better software proposals

URSSI could:

  • maintain a list of (US-eligible) software development funding opportunities
  • develop best practices for software development proposals
  • offer training for software development proposals (or point to others who do)
    • training/materials could be asynchronous, or in-person with NSF program officers as well, if they were willing to do so
  • perhaps this could be done with the Carpentries, or maybe it’s too country/discipline specific to be generalizable

XSEDE supports its potential users in this way - https://portal.xsede.org/allocations/research

Would NSF allow NSF funds to be used like this? I think so, based on activities it has funded like http://cisecareerworkshop.web.unc.edu
