Home > Press > NIST Seeks Suggestions for Future R&D Funding Areas

Abstract:
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is soliciting suggestions on areas of critical national and societal needs that could be addressed by transformative new technologies. The suggestions will be considered for incorporation in future competitions for cost-shared R&D funding under the NIST Technology Innovation Program (TIP).

NIST Seeks Suggestions for Future R&D Funding Areas

GAITHERSBURG, MD | Posted on September 14th, 2008

Established under the 2007 America COMPETES Act, TIP promotes innovation in the United States through high-risk, high-reward research in areas of critical national need. The merit-based competitive program can fund cost-shared R&D projects by single small-sized or medium-sized businesses or by joint ventures that also may include institutions of higher education, nonprofit research organizations and national laboratories.

NIST is requesting that interested parties submit "white papers" that describe an area of critical national need and the associated societal challenge and explain how those needs might be addressed through potential technological developments that fit the TIP profile of high-risk, high-reward R&D. The white papers, along with the input from NIST, TIP Advisory Board, other government agencies, the technical communities and other stakeholders, will be incorporated into the TIP competition planning process.

The deadline for submission of white papers to TIP is Nov. 1, 2008. Detailed instructions on how to prepare and submit white papers may be found in "A Guide for Preparing and Submitting White Papers on Areas of Critical National Need." The guide and additional information is available at www.nist.gov/tip/call_for_white_papers.pdf or by calling 1-888-847-6478.

The 2008 TIP competition addressed technologies for inspecting, monitoring and evaluating critical components of the nation's roadways, bridges, and drinking and wastewater systems. The white paper describing that area, "Advanced Sensing Technologies For The Infrastructure: Roads, Highways, Bridges And Water Systems," is available at www.nist.gov/tip/cnn_white_paperfinal.pdf. Additional information on TIP is available at www.nist.gov/tip.
