The Office of Research and Engagement encourages faculty interested in leading or participating in a Dept. Of Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) application to attend an information and discussion session.
WHEN: March 8, 12:30-2:30
WHERE: Blount Hall, Room A004
Please register here, even if you are unable to attend or can only join for part of the meeting. Registering will ensure that you receive updates and relevant materials.
Historically, the Basic Energy Sciences EFRC program has provided $2M-$4M/year for 4-5 years to awardees to address major research needs identified through BES Basic Research Needs workshops. The next EFRC solicitation is expected to be released in the summer of 2017.
Recent BES Basic Research Needs workshops (which could become EFRC topics) have been conducted in the following areas:
- Innovation and Discovery of Transformative Experimental Tools
- Synthesis Science for Energy Relevant Technology
- Quantum Materials for Energy Relevant Technology
- Sustainable Ammonia Synthesis
- Controlling Subsurface Fractures and Fluid Flow: A Basic Research Agenda
- Computing and Data Requirements in the Exascale Age
- Neuromorphic Computing – From Materials Research to Systems Architecture
