Mission Statement

Novel and Innovative Projects (NIP) accelerates research, scholarship, and education by new communities that can strongly benefit from the use of XSEDE’s ecosystem of advanced digital services. The NIP team helps to identify scientists, scholars and educators from disciplines that have not yet made significant use of advanced computing infrastructure, who are committed to projects that require XSEDE services and are in a good position to use them efficiently. NIP staff provides mentoring to these projects, helping them to obtain XSEDE allocations and to use them successfully.
The disciplines considered within the scope of NIP are defined in the child page "Scope of NIP".
