US NSF RFP – Scalable Nanomanufacturing (SNM)

The National Science Foundation (NSF) announces a second 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. The emphasis of this program is research that supports the identification and demonstration of nanomanufacturing processes with high potential to scale to economically and industrially relevant production levels.

For those US institutions submitting proposals, this is a great opportunity to consider funding for MS/PhD interns and postdocs positions in corporate labs doing this kind of R&D.

Estimated number of awards: 4 to 6 (anticipated total funding amount: $5,300,000)
Deadline for full proposals: June 4, 2012
