  NSF: Scalable Nanomanufacturing (SNM)NSF 13-545

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is expected to soon announce a fourth year of a program on collaborative research and education in the area of scalable nanomanufacturing, including the long-term societal implications of the large-scale implementation of nanomanufacturing innovations. This program is in response to and is a component of the National Nanotechnology Initiative Signature Initiative: Sustainable Nanomanufacturing - Creating the Industries of the Future ( Although many nanofabrication techniques have demonstrated the ability to fabricate small quantities of nanomaterials and devices for characterization and evaluation purposes, the emphasis of this program is on research to overcome the key impediments that prevent the low cost production of useful nanomaterials, devices and systems at industrially relevant scale.

USC may only submit one application in response to this program announcement. Your application submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please send a two page abstract via email to Richard White ( by March 14, 2013. In addition to the 2-page abstract, you should also submit a biosketch for the PI.

NSF has previously indicated that a letter of intent is NOT REQUIRED and a full proposal is expecte3d to be due by June 3, 2014. For more information:>
