Twenty-first century science and engineering (S&E) is being transformed by the increasing availability and scales of computation and data and the national cyberinfrastructure (CI) ecosystem has become a key catalyst for discovery and innovation. As the US National Science Foundation (NSF) moves on this vision for advancing science at speed and scale, an agile, integrated, robust, trustworthy and sustainable CI ecosystem that can drive new thinking and enable transformative discoveries. In this talk, I will present NSF’s strategy for realizing such a CI ecosystem and associated challenges and opportunities.
