PAWR Proposers Day Recap

Recently, the PAWR Project Office hosted Proposers’ Day in Arlington, Virginia. If you’ve been following US Ignite for a while, you know that the Platforms for Advanced Wireless Research (PAWR) program is a joint effort by the National Science Foundation and a wireless industry consortium to create city-scale testing platforms to accelerate fundamental research on wireless communication and networking technologies. The PAWR Project Office (PPO), jointly run by US Ignite and Northeastern University, is managing this $100 million public-private partnership to stand-up and oversee the eventual testing platforms. For Proposers’ Day, we invited wireless researchers, local government leaders and wireless industry experts from the private sector to review the PAWR program goals and timeline, walk-through the PAWR RFP, explore technical support available, and consider opportunities for teaming/partnerships.
