Solicitation: NSF 16-545
Due Date: July 01, 2016
Institutional Limit: 1
Only one MRSEC preliminary proposal may be submitted by any one organization as the lead institution in this competition. An institution proposing research in several groups should submit a single MRSEC proposal with multiple Interdisciplinary Research Groups (IRGs). A MRSEC proposal must contain a minimum of 2 IRGs and a maximum of 3 IRGs. The IRGs in a center may be thematically related, or they may address different aspects of materials research. A single center at an organization allows efficient usage of resources, including common infrastructure, and better coordination of education and other activities of the center.
Institutions that were awarded a MRSEC in the FY 2014 competition as the lead institution are not eligible to submit a MRSEC proposal as a lead institution in this competition.
