Institutional Submission Limit: 4
Sponsor Deadline: 03/04/2024
Program Website

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is being issued by the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's (EERE) Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Technologies Office (AMMTO). The goals of this FOA are to advance manufacturing platform technologies in the following specific areas:

  -  Platforms for next generation battery manufacturing - focusing on manufacturability and scalability of critical battery components and system architectures as well as the role of machines for battery techonlogies (i.e., sodium-ion batteries (NIBs), flow batteries, and nanolayered films)
 -   Smart manufacturing platforms for battery production - developing innovative ways to revolutionize battery prouction by maximizing the benefits of smart manufacturing

This FOA will support activities to advance platform techonologies that enable flexible, scalable, and highly controllable battery manufacturing processes.

Cost share is required and USC may submit 1 proposal per topic area:
1.1 Processes and Machines for Sodium-ion Batteries
1.2 Processes and Design for Manufacturability of Flow Batteries
1.3 Scalable Manufacturing of Nanolayered Films for Energy Storage
2 Smart Manufacturing Platforms for Battery Production

Submission Deadline for Concept Papers: 3/4/2024 5:00 p.m. ET
Submission Deadline for Full Applications: 5/7/2024 5:00 p.m. ET


Submission Process

Limited submissions MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research.

If interested in applying for this opportunity, prepare a single PDF containing:
1) a 1-2 page project abstract, include at top the the DOE program area, project title, PI, and list of key collaborators. The abstract must contain a statement regarding and confirming source of cost share requirements
2) 2-3 page CV/biosketch for the PI (SCiENcv preferred)

Email the PDF to Julie Morris at by 5pm on the INTERNAL DEADLINE above.
