Proposed Project The NSF’s Division of Industrial Innovation and Partnerships (IIP), within the Engineering Directorate, serves a wide range of grantees across 5 major programs. The IUCRC program provides a structure for academic researchers to conduct fundamental, pre-competitive research of shared interest to industry and government organizations. These organizations pay membership fees to a consortium so that they can collectively envision and fund research, with at least 90% of Member funds allocated to the direct costs of these shared research projects. IUCRCs are formed around research areas of strategic interest to U.S. industry. Industry is defined very broadly to include companies (large and small), startups and non-profit organizations. Principal Investigators form a Center around emerging research topics of current research interest, in a pre-competitive space but with clear pathways to applied research and commercial development. Industry partners join at inception, as an existing Center grows, or they inspire the creation of a new Center by recruiting university partners to leverage NSF support. Government agencies participate in IUCRCs as Members or by partnering directly with NSF at the strategic level. E:\FR\FM\21FEN1.SGM 21FEN1

Overview of This Information Collection

    Type of Request: New collection.
    Title: History, The Past, and Public Culture Survey.
    OMB Control Number: To be determined.

[[Page 10195]]

    Abstract: This information collection request (ICR) is pursuant to 
a cooperative agreement between NEH and the American Historical 
Association (AHA). The purpose of the survey is to understand how the 
public perceives, and engages with, history and the work of historians. 
NEH, AHA, and the many educational and cultural institutions they 
support will use the information gathered in the proposed survey to 
create responsive and effective history and other humanities 
programming to better serve the American people. Most immediately, NEH 
will use findings from the survey to inform programming for ``A More 
Perfect Union,'' the agency's special initiative advancing civic 
education and commemorating the nation's 250th anniversary in 2026.
    NEH and AHA are developing the survey in collaboration with an 
advisory board, regional history experts, and Fairleigh Dickinson 
University Poll (FDUP), a market research and public interest survey 
center. In April of 2020, FDUP will administer this internet survey to 
adults in the United States. Survey questions will concern respondents' 
perceptions of history and its significance, their opinions about the 
work of historians, and their consumption of history in various forms 
and via a variety of media and experiences. The survey will be 
voluntary and will collect both qualitative and quantitative 
information. FDUP will ensure optimal polling methodology and manage 
the logistics of the data collection. This survey will not collect any 
personally identifiable information (PII).
    Affected Public: Survey respondents will be adult individuals in 
the United States.
    Frequency of Information Collection: Once.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,500.
    Estimated Average Time per Response: 20 minutes.
    Estimated Total Burden Hours: 500 hours.
    The estimates for the average time per response and the total 
burden hours are lower than those provided in the initial Federal 
Register notice concerning this ICR. After publishing the initial 
notice, NEH and its survey partners refined the survey questions and 
response options. While the estimated number of respondents remains the 
same, NEH now estimates that the average time per response will be 20 
(rather than 25) minutes; accordingly, the estimated total burden hours 
will be 500 (rather than 625) hours.

Request for Comments

    The public is invited to comment on all aspects of this ICR, 
including: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the 
accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed 
collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, 
and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to 
minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, 
including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, 
mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms 
of information technology.
    Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources 
expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide 
information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed 
to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize 
technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and 
verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and 
disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able 
to respond to a collection of information, to search data sources, to
