NSF: Scalable Nanomanufacturing for Integrated Systems (SNM-IS)NSF 16-604
This solicitation is in response to and is a component of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) Signature Initiative: Sustainable Nanomanufacturing - Creating the Industries of the Future (http://www.nano.gov/NSINanomanufacturing).
Competitive proposals must investigate novel scalable nanomanufacturing and integration methods for nano-enabled integrated systems with a clear commercial relevance. Proposals should consider addressing key aspects of the nanomanufacturing value chain comprised of nano-scale building-blocks → complex nanomaterials and nanostructures → functional components and devices → integrated sub-systems and systems.The SNM-IS solicitation is NOT seeking research proposals in large-scale manufacturing of single component nanomaterials and nanostructures.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) by November 1, 2016. In addition to the 2-page abstract, you should also submit a biosketch for the PI.
NSF has indicated a letter of intent is NOT REQUIRED and a full proposal is due January 13, 2017. For more information: http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2016/nsf16604/nsf16604.htm>
