Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education (NSF-NUE) in Engineering
The Research Office, Incentive Funds Program is requesting Letters of Intent for the National Science Foundation (NSF) – Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education (NSF-NUE) in Engineering program.
The NSF-NUE program aims at introducing nanoscale science, engineering, and technology through a variety of interdisciplinary approaches into undergraduate engineering education. The focus of the 2013 competition is on nanoscale engineering education with relevance to devices and systems and/or on the societal, ethical, economic and/or environmental issues relevant to nanotechnology.
Limit Summary: Only one proposal may be submitted by a US academic institution, College/Department of Engineering or College/Department of Engineering Technology as the lead institution.
The proposals will need to be screened within the College of Engineering. If there are multiple proposals we ask that Dean Woods determine which proposal will represent the college and Oregon State University for submission to NSF by the full proposal deadline of May 22, 2013. Please let Debbie Delmore in the Research Office know who will be submitting a proposal to NSF as soon as the decision is made.
In addition, NSF will allow a US academic institution to submit a second proposal as the lead institution, only if it is focused on the societal, ethical, economic and/or environmental issues relevant to nanotechnology.
Research Office Letter of Intent submission deadline: Friday, April 5, 2013
