Level of Interest Feedback Evaluation (LIFE) forms will be used at the CAMTech Planning Meeting to provide Center Scientists with FEEDBACK from Prospective Center Member representatives on proposed research projects. In addition to conveying the level of interest in a given project, these forms will also be used to indicate how projects could be modified to align more closely with industrial needs. LIFE forms can be completed online (encouraged) or by hand.
Information on the online LIFE form system can be found at the NSF I/UCRC Operational Tools site including a powerpoint presentation tutorial for use of the LIFE form system.

There is a You tube video (14:51) describing the NSF LIFE form evaluation process as part of a presentation by Dee Hoffman, Evaluator for the Center for Agricultural Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Nanotechnology to the Industry Advisory Board. (Discussion of the LIFE form is at 7:22).
Or, a pdf version of a similar presentation is also available.
