WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced that the National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded the University of Cincinnati a $610,000 grant to improve the failure resolution process mobile applications when a bug is reported by reproducing, creating and generating tests. The techniques developed in this project will be evaluated for their effectiveness in everyday real-world applications.
“Scientific and technological research is critical to create jobs and improve our economy. We unleash more American innovation when everyone is able to participate and we nurture all of Ohio’s talent,” said Brown. “The University of Cincinnati is one of Ohio’s great institutions of higher learning. The award will help the university advance our knowledge and maintain Ohio’s leadership in innovation.
In addition to these grants, Brown also co-sponsored the Early Career Researcher Support Act establish a two-year pilot program at the NSF to award grants to highly qualified early-career researchers at independent research institutions of higher education for up to two years. This will help prevent the loss of research talent due to labor market disruptions caused by the pandemic.
The NSF supports research and education in all non-medical areas of science and engineering.
