Nanoscale Science and Engineering (NSE)

Foresight Institute has learned that the National Science Foundation is calling for grant proposals that in the scope of the application can include some research on longer-term molecular nanotechnology (MNT).

(Details available here)

Solicitation Descriptions And Deadlines:

There are three types of nanoscale research supported by this solicitation. Each type has specific deadlines.

Nanoscale Interdisciplinary Research Teams (NIRT)

Full proposal - deadline November 12, 2004 The Nanoscale Interdisciplinary Research Teams (NIRT) activity will support small collaborative groups of three or more investigators at the faculty level or equivalent. At least three Principal Investigators (PIs) and co-PIs, all with time, committed in the budget, must be listed on the cover page of the proposal. The maximum number of PIs and co-PIs is five; other participants may be listed in the project summary and on the budget pages. The duration of of this project is five years. NIRT proposals may be submitted by a single organization or a group of organizations consisting of a lead organization in partnership with one or more partner organizations. "U.S. academic institutions with significant research and degree-granting education programs in disciplines normally supported by NSF are eligible to be the lead organization. Principal investigators are encouraged to form synergistic collaborations with industry, government laboratories, and scientists and engineers at foreign organizations where appropriate, though no funds will be provided to those organizations."

Nanoscale Exploratory Research (NER)

Full proposal - Deadline November 18, 2004 Nanoscale Exploratory Research (NER): Proposals may be submitted by U.S. academic institutions with undergraduate and/or Ph.D. programs in disciplines usually supported by NSF. Research may be proposed by individual investigators or by small groups from academic institutions. Synergistic collaboration among researchers, and collaboration or partnerships with industry or government laboratories are encouraged when appropriate. Prospective proposers are encouraged to contact one of the program officers listed in this solicitation (except for the MPS program officers) for additional guidance on suitability of NER submission if there are questions.

Nanoscale Science And Engineering Centers (NSEC)

Preliminary proposal required - Deadline November 10, 2004 Full proposal - Deadline March 1, 2005 (Note the full proposal may only be submitted by invitation from NSF) Nanoscale Science and Engineering Centers (NSEC) may be based at a single U.S. academic institution or may consist of a lead institution in partnership with one or more partner institutions. U.S. academic institutions with undergraduate and Ph.D. programs in disciplines normally supported by NSF are eligible to submit one preliminary proposal -- and one full proposal ONLY if invited by NSF -- as the lead institution. Partnerships of the lead institution with other universities/colleges are encouraged. A single institution cannot be the lead institution in more than one preliminary proposal, or on more than one full proposal if invited by NSF. Institutions may be involved as a partner institution in any number of preliminary proposals and full proposals.

Sections Applicable To MNT Research:

We urge you to read this grant solicitation carefully but would like to direct you to sections where MNT research may be applicable. We are listing these by title only.

Under Section II - Program Descriptions

  • Nanoscale Devices and System Architecture
  • Multi-scale, Multi-phenomena Theory, Modeling and Simulation at the nanoscale
  • Manufacturing Processes at the Nanoscale
  • Societal and Educational Implications of Scientific and Technological Advances on the Nanoscale

Foresight Institute Assistance:

Foresight Institute is willing to facilitate on a limited basis to those who are interested in submitting proposals to this solicitation.

Here are some of the areas where we can be of help.

  • Matching investigators, particularly non-academics with academics
  • Review proposals and provide feedback (we will need advance notice if you desire this assistance.)
  • Matching researchers with grant writing assistance (this will entail connecting you with a grant writer with whom you will interact with directly.)

Foresight Institute is the leading think tank and public interest organization focused on nanotechnology. Formed in 1986 by K. Eric Drexler and Christine Peterson, Foresight dedicates itself to providing education, policy development, and networking to maximize benefits and minimize downsides of molecular manufacturing.
