NIST soliciting applications for technology roadmaps

SSTI reports that the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has announced a new competition for awards to support industry-driven consortia in developing technology roadmaps that will address high-priority research challenges to grow the advanced manufacturing sector in the U.S. and is inviting applications to its Manufacturing USA Technology Roadmap (MfgTech) grants program.

Roadmaps should: (1) address major technological barriers that inhibit the growth of advanced manufacturing in the U.S. that no single organization could tackle on its own; (2) identify and prioritize research projects supporting long-term industrial research needs; (3) create new and/or update broadly available industry-driven, shared-vision technology roadmaps to support strategic and long-range planning; and (4) catalyze development and support the maintenance of a technology infrastructure and excellence in advanced manufacturing, including identifying technology areas appropriate for potential new Manufacturing USA institutes.

Up to eight awards will be made with a period of performance of up to 18 months each, and individual awards could be for up to $300,000 without a cost-share requirement. Eligibility is restricted to domestic non-federal organizations and applications are due August 17. More information is available here.
