NDnano to award center proposal development grants

Notre Dame Nanoscience and Technology (NDnano) is accepting proposals from Notre Dame faculty in the Colleges of Engineering and Science to assist faculty working on center proposals or large multi-faculty research proposals. Through these grants, NDnano aims to enhance the win probability in these multifaceted proposals, which could require research to fill critical gaps in theory, experiment, or benchmarking. To be eligible for these funds, the Request for Proposal submission deadline for the target center should occur in calendar year 2023 or 2024. The first deadline for submission of development grants will be February 3, 2023.
