The OFR is partnering with the National Science Foundation (NSF) to promote and support research related to financial stability.
The OFR and the NSF’s Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) are collaborating to fund innovative research on approaches to computing and information processing to identify and analyze risks to the financial system.
Topics of interest include analysis of financial networks, methods for measuring threats to financial stability, standardization of financial data, interconnections in the financial system, financial risk management techniques, data security, secure data sharing, and other subjects.

This grants program relates to the OFR’s mandate to conduct, coordinate, and sponsor research to support and improve regulation of financial entities and markets. The joint OFR-NSF program, based on the NSF’s Early-concept Grant for Exploratory Research (EAGER
) program, is intended to promote novel research related to financial stability and expand the network of academics, researchers, data scientists, and others with interest in this subject. The EAGER program supports exploratory work in its early stages on untested, but potentially transformative, research ideas or approaches. This work could be considered especially valuable by involving novel research, exploring radically different approaches, applying new expertise, or taking novel disciplinary or interdisciplinary perspectives.
