Title of Collection: Grantee Reporting Requirements for the Engineering Research Centers (ERCs). OMB Number: 3145–0220. Type of Request: Intent to seek approval to renew an information collection. Abstract: Proposed Project: The Engineering Research Centers (ERC) program supports an integrated, interdisciplinary research environment to advance fundamental engineering knowledge and engineered systems; educate a globally competitive and diverse engineering workforce from K–12 on; and join academe and industry in partnership to achieve these goals. ERCs conduct world-class research through partnerships of academic institutions, national laboratories, industrial organizations, and/or other public/ private entities. New knowledge thus created is meaningfully linked to society. ERCs conduct world-class research with an engineered systems perspective that integrates materials, devices, processes, components, control algorithms and/or other enabling elements to perform a well-defined function. These systems provide a unique academic research and education experience that involves integrative complexity and technological realization. The complexity of the systems perspective includes the factors associated with its use in industry, society/environment, or the human body. ERCs enable and foster excellent education, integrate research and education, speed knowledge/technology transfer through partnerships between academe and industry, and prepare a more competitive future workforce. ERCs capitalize on diversity through participation in center activities and demonstrate leadership in the involvement of groups underrepresented in science and engineering. Centers are required to submit annual reports on progress and plans, which will be used as a basis for performance review and determining the level of continued funding. To support this review and the management of a Center, ERCs also are required to submit management and performance indicators annually to NSF via a data collection website that is managed by a technical assistance contractor. These indicators are both quantitative and descriptive and may include, for example, the characteristics of center VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:58 Jun 22, 2018 Jkt 244001 personnel and students; sources of cash and in-kind support; expenditures by operational component; characteristics of industrial and/or other sector participation; research activities; education activities; knowledge transfer activities; patents, licenses; publications; degrees granted to students involved in Center activities; descriptions of significant advances and other outcomes of the ERC effort. Such reporting requirements will be included in the cooperative agreement which is binding between the academic institution and the NSF. Each Center’s annual report will address the following categories of activities: (1) Vision and impact, (2) strategic plan, (3) research program, (4) innovation ecosystem and industrial collaboration, (5) education, (6) infrastructure (leadership, management, facilities, diversity) and (7) budget issues. For each of the categories the report will describe overall objectives for the year, progress toward center goals, problems the Center has encountered in making progress towards goals and how they were overcome, plans for the future and anticipated research and other barriers to overcome in the following year, and specific outputs and outcomes. Use of the Information: The data collected will be used for NSF internal reports, historical data, performance review by peer site visit teams, program level studies and evaluations, and for securing future funding for continued ERC program maintenance and growth. Estimate of Burden: 150 hours per center for 17 centers for a total of 2,550 hours. Respondents: Academic institutions. Estimated Number of Responses per Report: One from each of the 17 ERCs. Dated: June 19, 2018. Suzanne H. Plimpton, Reports Clearance Officer, National Science Foundation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Discussion Pursuant to section 2.106 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), the NRC is providing notice of the issuance of renewal of License SNM–95 to PSU, which authorizes PSU to possess and use SNM for education, research, and training programs at its campus in University Park, Pennsylvania. This licensee’s original request for renewal of its license was made on September 23, 2013 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13273A207). Because the licensed material will be used for research, development, and for educational purposes, renewal of License SNM–95 is an action that is categorically excluded from a requirement to prepare an environmental assessment or environmental impact statement, pursuant to 10 CFR 51.22(c)(14)(v). A notice of receipt of the license renewal application with an opportunity to request a hearing and petition for leave to intervene was published in the Federal Register on February 2, 2015 (80 FR 5580). The NRC did not receive a request for a hearing or for a petition for leave to intervene. This license renewal complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, and the NRC’s rules and regulations as set forth in 10 CFR chapter 1. Accordingly, the license renewal was issued on April 24, 2018, and was effective immediately. The NRC prepared a safety evaluation report for the renewal of License SNM– 95 and concluded that the licensee can continue to operate the facility without endangering the health and safety of the public.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Discussion

    Section 208 of the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, as amended 
(Pub. L. 93-438), defines an ``abnormal occurrence'' (AO) as an 
unscheduled incident or event that the NRC determines to be significant 
from the standpoint of public health or safety.

[[Page 29580]]

The AO report (ADAMS Accession No. ML18157A051), describes those events 
that the NRC identified as AOs during FY 2017, based on the criteria 
defined in Appendix A of the report.
    The report describes six events at Agreement State-licensed 
facilities and five events at an NRC-licensed facilities. All 11 events 
occurred at medical facilities and are ``medical events'' as defined in 
part 35 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR).
    Agreement States are the 37 U.S. States that currently have entered 
into formal agreements with the NRC pursuant to Section 274 of the 
Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (AEA), to regulate certain 
quantities of AEA-licensed material at facilities located within their 
borders.
    The Federal Reports Elimination and Sunset Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 
104-66) requires that AOs be reported to Congress annually. The full 
report, NUREG-0090, Volume 40, ``Report to Congress on Abnormal 
Occurrences: Fiscal Year 2017,'' is also available electronically at
