Summary
New information, communication, and computational technologies have had profound impacts on the practice of science (in this solicitation, the term science includes the natural, mathematical, computing, and social sciences),  engineering, and education. This includes the means by which citizens of all ages use science  and engineering to enhance professional and private lives.  The systems, tools, and services emerging from these new technologies are linked to create a comprehensive cyberinfrastructure that is enabling individuals, groups, and organizations to advance research and education in ways that revolutionize who can participate, what they can do, and how they do it. Sustaining this revolution across all areas of science, engineering, and education requires the formation of a citizenry and workforce with the knowledge and skills needed to design and deploy as well as adopt and apply these cyber-based systems, tools and services over the long-term. The opportunity for such preparation should be available at all stages of formal and informal education (K-16 and lifelong), training and professional development, and must be extended to all individuals and communities.

The CI-TEAM program supports projects that integrate science and engineering research and education activities that range from local activities to global-scale efforts,  as appropriate, to  promote, leverage and utilize cyberinfrastructure systems, tools and services.
