Center Innovation Fund

The purpose of the Center Innovation Fund is to stimulate and encourage creativity and innovation within the NASA Centers in addressing the technology needs of NASA and the nation. Funds will be distributed to each NASA Center to support emerging technologies and creative initiatives that leverage Center talent and capabilities. NASA scientists and engineers will lead projects but partnerships among Centers and with other agencies, research laboratories, academia and private industry are encouraged. The Center Chief Technologists will coordinate a competitive process at their Center for the selection of projects, and candidate projects will be reviewed by NASA Headquarters to prevent duplication and ensure relevance to NASA goals. Centers will report on progress periodically and the program office at NASA Headquarters will evaluate the Center efforts on an annual basis.
