We will post when the 2018 deadline is announced. Multidisciplinary University Initiative (MURI) efforts involve teams of researchers investigating high priority topics and opportunities that intersect more than one traditional technical discipline. For many military problems this multidisciplinary approach serves to stimulate innovations, accelerate research progress and expedite transition of results into naval applications.
This is a limited submission – updates will be posted here. The Brain Research Foundation Fay/Frank Seed Grant Program provides start-up monies for new research projects in the field of neuroscience that will likely lead to extramural funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) or other outside funding sources.
With the goal of encouraging research independence immediately upon obtaining one’s first academic position after receipt of the PhD, the Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) will award grants to initiate the course of one’s independent research. Understanding the critical role of establishing that independence early in one’s career, it is expected that funds will be used to support untenured faculty or research scientists (or equivalent) in their first three years in a primary academic position after the PhD, but not more than a total of five years after completion of their PhD.
We will post updates. The purpose of this solicitation is to invite research groups to submit requests for allocations of resources on the Blue Waters system. Proposers must show compelling science or engineering challenges that require petascale computing resources.
We will post any follow up here. The Automotive Research Center is a U.S. Army Center for Excellence for modeling and simulation of ground vehicles led by the University of Michigan. The center is soliciting proposals for new or continuing work with a start date in 2018. These are single proposal with one PI who is responsible for project funds and reporting requirements.
We will post any follow up future opportunities here. Toyota Research Institute (TRI) invites proposals from the University of Michigan (U-M) in the areas of machine intelligence applied to robotics, self-driving cars, and automotive safety. As part of the $22M partnership with U-M announced in 2016, TRI plans to award up to $8 million for new research projects starting on January 1, 2018, in areas of interest to TRI. Newly funded projects will have durations ranging from one year to up to three years.
We will post if there is a follow up. The STEM + Computing Partnerships (STEM+C) program seeks to advance a 21st century conceptualization of education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) that includes computing, both as a STEMdiscipline in its own right consistent with the STEM Education Act of 2015, which explicitly includes computing as a STEM discipline for purposes of federal programs  and as a discipline integral to the practice of all other STEM disciplines._
The CDS&E program-s goal is to use novel computational infrastructure, develop algorithms and new modeling approaches for the advancement of scientific and engineering disciplines.
We will post when the 2018 deadline is announced. DURIP is designed to improve the capabilities of accredited United States (U.S.) institutions of higher education to conduct research and to educate scientists and engineers in areas important to national defense, by providing funds for the acquisition of research equipment or instrumentation
The CISE Research Infrastructure (CRI) program drives discovery and learning in the core CISE disciplines of the three participating CISE divisions by supporting the creation and enhancement of world-class research infrastructure that will support focused research agendas in computer and information science and engineering. This infrastructure will enable CISE researchers to advance the frontiers of CISE research. Further, through the CRI program, CISE seeks to ensure that individuals from a diverse range of academic institutions, including minority-serving and predominantly undergraduate institutions, have access to such infrastructure.
