Scalable Nanomanufacturing Grants Program
Page 2

In the past, there have already been several nanofabrication techniques that have demonstrated the ability to produce small quantities of nanomaterials and devices. But the primary goal of this initiative is to concentrate on research studies that can support and facilitate the identification and demonstration of nanomanufacturing processes with high potential to scale to
economically and industrially relevant production levels.

The National Science Foundation requires the proposals that will be submitted under this program to address at least one, and preferably more
than one, of the following interconnected themes:

a) Novel processes and techniques for continuous and scalable nanomanufacturing;

b) Directed (physical, chemical, biological) self-assembly processes leading to heterogeneous nanostructures with the potential for high-rate production;

c) Fundamental scientific research in well-defined areas that are compellingly justified as critical roadblocks to scale-up;

d) Principles and design methods to produce machines and processes to manufacture nanoscale structures, devices and systems; and finally

e) Long-term societal and educational implications of the large-scale production and use of nanomaterials, devices and systems, including the life-cycle analysis of such nanomaterials, devices and systems.

The NSF is willing to administer approximately 4 to 6 grants awards with a total funding amount of $5,300,000.

The institutions and organizations who will be considered eligible to submit an application under the Scalable Nanomanufacturing Grants Program are the following:

a) Accredited Universities and Colleges

b) Two and four-year Colleges

c) Communities and Colleges
