NSF and Lemelson partner to support environmental and social sustainability in engineering education

Dec 12, 2023

By U.S. National Science Foundation December 12, 2023 The U.S. National Science Foundation and The Lemelson Foundation have announced a new joint initiative to support the integration of environmental and social sustainability into the education of future engineers. Lemelson will provide up to $3 million over three years to support qualified engineering education projects through the NSF Research in the Formation of Engineers program. “Engineers have an important role in addressing many grand challenges — such as infrastructure resilience, climate change and the growth of emerging industries and manufacturing — where sustainability is an essential component,” said Susan Margulies, NSF assistant director for Engineering. “Engineering students want to make our world better, and the NSF-Lemelson initiative will prepare them with the interdisciplinary tools and practices they will need to address complex challenges.” To support a sustainable future, projects may focus on addressing societal challenges; developing case studies and sustainability engineering content; exploring engineering identities and beliefs about sustainability; integrating sustainability with engineering design; and other areas. “In an era of unprecedented environmental and social challenges, the demand for climate solutions and engineers equipped with sustainability skills has never been greater. The Lemelson Foundation’s  Engineering for One Planet  (EOP) initiative is a transformative force in engineering education — working with educators, students, industry and other funders to prepare all engineers to contribute to a more livable and equitable planet,” shares Rob Schneider, executive director of The Lemelson Foundation. “In collaboration with NSF, we are excited to accelerate efforts to foster a new generation of engineers who can not only address complex technical challenges, but who also understand and prioritize the human and environmental implications of their work.” Information about the special funding opportunity is available in the Dear Colleague Letter for the initiative:  NSF-Lemelson Initiative on Environmental and Social Sustainability in Engineering Education (NSF 24-028) . Proposals are accepted at any time; to be considered for funding in Fiscal Year 2024, applicants should submit proposals by April 30, 2024. The  Research in the Formation of Engineers program  in NSF’s Directorate for Engineering supports research to advance understanding of how professional engineers are formed. The program seeks both to deepen our fundamental understanding of the underlying processes and mechanisms that support professional formation and to demonstrate how professional formation is or can be accomplished. Ultimately, the program aims to transform the engineer-formation system to foster an innovative and inclusive engineering profession for the 21st century. For more than 70 years, NSF has recognized the central role that partnerships play in achieving the United States’ research and development objectives.
