Nanomanufacturing Materials and Processes (NMP) Call for Research

Funding Agency:
Semiconductor Research Corporation

Semiconductor Research Corp. (SRC) Nanomanufacturing Materials and Processes (NMP) member companies are pleased to solicit white papers for possible funding in 2025.

The call is open to all domestic and foreign universities and may be addressed by an individual investigator or a research team. Our selection process is divided into two stages. Interested parties are requested to submit a 1-page white paper, which should identify what can be done in a three-year period beginning January 1, 2025. A successfully selected white paper will result in an invitation to submit a full proposal. These proposals will be further down selected for SRC research contracts.

It is the intention of the members for selected projects to be reviewed and renewed annually, but we anticipate that a project will have a lifetime of 3 years which should help support a mix of research scholars.  SRC projects typically involve research scholars from undergraduate to post docs. 

SRC expects to support each project up to $135K (USD) per year.  The number and size of the contracts awarded will be determined by the availability of funds, the support of the research needs, and by the number of high-quality proposals. Proposals offering funding leverage (other funding resources related and beneficial to the proposed work) are encouraged and details should be described (ex. Fellowships, student support, fabrication support, etc.).

Each researcher may be involved in no more than two white papers as either a principal investigator or co-principal investigator.


Deadline for White Papers: May 7, 2024
