Research Coordination Networks (RCNs) are a type of National Science Foundation (NSF) project that advance a field or create new directions in research or education by supporting groups of investigators to communicate and coordinate their research, training and educational activities  across disciplinary, organizational, geographic and international boundaries.

NSF's Advancing Informal STEM Learning (AISL) program welcomes submissions of RCN proposals that advance AISL goals through the sharing of ideas, knowledge, and practices. RCNs are an additional avenue for considering strategic impact, advancing effective collaborations, and broadening participation.

This short presentation provides an overview of the NSF RCN soliciation.

NSF also recommends reviewing the RCN solicitation for further details (linked below), and speaking to an AISL program officer if considering this proposal mechanism.
