NSF: Scalable Nanomanufacturing (SNM)NSF 13-545
The National Science Foundation (NSF) announces a fifth year of a program on collaborative research and education in the area of Scalable Nanomanufacturing. 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 (http://www.nano.gov/node/611). Although many nanofabrication techniques have demonstrated the ability to fabricate small quantities of nanomaterials, nanostructures and nanodevices for characterization and evaluation purposes, the emphasis of the Scalable Nanomanufacturing program is on research to overcome the key scientific and technical barriers that prevent the production of useful nanomaterials, nanostructures, devices and systems at an industrially relevant scale, reliably, and at low cost and within environmental, health and safety guidelines.
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 December 2, 2014. 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 20, 2015. For more information: http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2015/nsf15507/nsf15507.htm>
