"The Convergence Accelerator's curriculum, consisting of human-centered design; user discovery; team science; early-stage prototyping; and pitch preparation is designed to provide our funded teams the tools to transition their solutions into practice," said Douglas Maughan, office head of the NSF Convergence Accelerator program.
