Title of Collection: NSF I-Corps Teams Executive Summary Form.

OMB Control No.: 3145-New.

Expiration Date of Approval: Not applicable.

Abstract: The NSF Innovation Corps (I-Corps) Teams Program Executive Summary is an important component of the NSF I-Corps Teams pre-submission process and conveys information needed to direct the proposed team project to the appropriate NSF Program Director (PD) for review and possible proposal submission invitation. This Executive Summary (ES) is to be submitted by the applying team to the cognizant I-Corps Team's PD outlining solicitation-specific aspects of the project (such as proposed team members, technology, commercial application and NSF lineage). In the past, this ES was submitted via email as an attached two-page (maximum) document and was often in varying formats or missing some parts of the required ES elements. The NSF I-Corps Teams Executive Summary Form captures the same requested information, as outlined in NSF I-Corps Teams Program solicitation, but all within one secure, web-based form. In specific, the form collects submitting team member information (composition, roles and a brief description of each member's qualifications), Principal Investigator (PI) information (and a brief description of their connection to the team), NSF lineage (relevant current or previous NSF awards), a brief description of the core technology, a brief description of the potential commercial application, and a brief description of the current commercialization plan for the proposed technology. If the proposed I-Corps Team is applying based on participation in a local or regional NSF I-Corps Site or Node training session, the form will provide fields for the applying team to complete regarding the associated I-Corps Site or Node senior member's contact information (as a reference) and location of the associated Site or Node.

Respondents: Investigators who submit proposals to NSF's I-Corps Teams Program.

Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 400.

Burden on the Public: 2 hour (per response) for an annual total of 800 hours.
