Federal funding opportunity: The Technology Innovation Program (TIP) of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has $25 million in first year funding for high-risk, high-reward research projects in two areas of Critical National Need: Civil Infrastructure (innovative, cost-effective sensor and sensor-network technologies for testing and monitoring of the structural health of major infrastructure components) and Manufacturing (enable better, more cost-effective use of advanced materials in innovative products).
Learn more about this federal program and how to apply by attending a broadcast Proposers' conference at MIC. The conference will provide general TIP program information, guidance on preparing proposals, and the opportunity for questions and answers. NIST/TIP staff will answer questions about the TIP eligibility and cost-sharing requirements, evaluation and award criteria, selection process, and the general characteristics of a competitive TIP proposal.
The event is organized by HTDC, HREDV and UH College of Engineering.
