Project Team

The NSN Network is led by the Center for Occupational Research and Development (CORD) in partnership with leadership from four NSF-ATE Centers: FLATE, SCATE, CSSIA, and the Convergence Technology Center. We are continually seeking partners and collaborators for the Network. Feel free to reach out to any of us individually or email us at and we’ll connect you with a team member.
