Re: The Incestuous Google/NSF Team Model
Now, academics working in related areas can submit research proposals to apply for funding.
Now that might have been interesting and rewarding had they not right royally fcuked everything up with default bog standard Uncle Sam ineligibility information ....
Who May Submit Proposals:
Proposals may only be submitted by the following:
Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs) - Two- and four-year IHEs (including community colleges) accredited in, and having a campus located in the US, acting on behalf of their faculty members. Special Instructions for International Branch Campuses of US IHEs: If the proposal includes funding to be provided to an international branch campus of a US institution of higher education (including through use of subawards and consultant arrangements), the proposer must explain the benefit(s) to the project of performance at the international branch campus, and justify why the project activities cannot be performed at the US campus.
Non-profit, non-academic organizations: Independent museums, observatories, research labs, professional societies and similar organizations in the U.S. associated with educational or research activities.
One imagines that is invariably always included somewhere in such sorts of disruptive experimentation to try and ensure a monopolistic retention of a distinctively exclusive overwhelming advantage ...... Lead Prime Cutting Edge.
