National Science Foundation, Scalable Nanomanufacturing (SNM)

We are soliciting internal letters of intent from investigators or teams of investigators wishing to submit proposals to the National Science Foundation, Scalable Nanomanufacturing (SNM).

The goal of the Scalable Nanomanufacturing (SNM) competition is to find high-risk/high-reward research and education proposals with a focus on nanomanufacturing challenges and societal and educational issues associated with continuing advances in nanomanufacturing and the ensuing increasing use of nanoscale materials, devices and systems.

Faculty members or teams of investigators interested in submitting an SNM proposal to NSF must first submit an internal mandatory letter of intent. Letters of intent should be no more than one page and identify the project scope, principal investigators, collaborators, and partner organizations. As an institution we may submit only one proposal for consideration.

Letters of intent must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. Friday, April 4, 2014 as a word or pdf document to, with NSF SNM and the last name of the lead PI(s) in the subject line. If the Office of Research receives multiple letters of intent, we will run an internal competition for pre-proposals. Anyone who does not submit a letter of intent will not be permitted to participate in the pre-proposal competition nor submit a full proposal by the June 16, 2014 due date.
