NSF recently released a Dear Colleague Letterhttps://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2022/nsf22036/nsf22036.jsp to introduce a Track to enhance opportunities for persons with disabilities. Please share this opportunity with your colleagues.
From the letter:
“Track H: Enhancing Opportunities for Persons with Disabilities
There are almost 50 million people with disabilities (PWD or PWDs) in the United States today. PWDs, especially women and those from traditionally underserved racial and ethnic groups, experience major physical and professional barriers that can impact their health, careers, and overall quality of life. The NSF Convergence Accelerator's Track H: Enhancing Opportunities for Persons with Disabilities will serve as a platform to bring together researchers, practitioners, and stakeholders from a wide range of disciplines and sectors to work on use-inspired solutions to enhance quality of life and employment access and opportunities for PWDs. The convergent research track topic was chosen based on the results of NSF-funded community workshops, such as the Accelerating Disability Inclusion in Workplaces Through Technology Workshophttps://www.nsf.gov/cgi-bin/good-bye?https://das-prod-nsf-gov.s3.amazonaws.com/2021-12/Accelerating%20Disability%20Inclusion%20in%20Workplaces%20Through%20Technology%20Workshop%20Report_2122120_May%202021_Final_Ready%20for%20508.pdf and Liberate 2021: Living Better through Rehabilitative and Assistive Technology. Broad topics within this track may include – but are not limited to – the ones listed below.
