Important information for proposers

All proposals must be submitted in accordance with the requirements specified in this funding opportunity and in the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) that is in effect for the relevant due date to which the proposal is being submitted. It is the responsibility of the proposer to ensure that the proposal meets these requirements. Submitting a proposal prior to a specified deadline does not negate this requirement.


This is a continuation of a collaborative research program between the National Science Foundation (NSF) and Sandia National Laboratories (Sandia) that was started in 1997. The objective of this collaborative program is to fund research projects focused on science-based experimental, computational and theoretical capabilities that enhance our understanding and confidence of the behavior of engineered systems at unprecedented multiple spatial and temporal scales.

Focus areas for this solicitation are 1) thermal transport and fluid mechanics; 2) solid mechanics and structural dynamics; 3) micro/nanoscale phenomenology and metrology; 4) predictive modeling for manufacturing and process optimization; and 5) micro/nanomanufacturing technologies
