Office of Naval Research (ONR), will give a presentation about ONR interests and working with ONR.

Schuette leads the Office of Research, which manages a number of basic and applied research programs including the Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI), Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP), Basic Research Challenge, and Young Investigator Program (YIP). His office also oversees the Summer Faculty Research and Sabbatical Leave programs for eligible science and engineering faculty members.

When: Tuesday, March 21 at 9:30 a.m.
Where: Blount Hall, Room A004

Schuette’s talk promises to offer valuable insights on U.S. Navy research priorities as well as means to engage with ONR. All interested faculty are invited to attend.

Scalable Nanomanufacturing (SNM) Solicitation

The Scalable Nanomanufacturing for Integrated Systems (SNM-IS) solicitation is changed from the previous Scalable Nanomanufacturing (SNM) solicitation in that the objective has shifted from research in large-scale manufacturing of single-component nanomaterials and nanostructures to investigations in scalable nanomanufacturing and integration of multi-component nano-enabled integrated systems. The SNM-IS solicitation seeks proposals that investigate novel scalable nanomanufacturing and integration methods for nano-enabled integrated systems with a clear commercial relevance. Proposals should consider addressing key aspects of the nanomanufacturing value chain. Please see the full RFP for complete information.

Naval Science and Technology Expo in February, where over 2,500 representatives from government, industry, and academia gathered to discuss key ONR programs and new research opportunities.

Six faculty members from the University of Tennessee were among those in attendance. Most of them were invited to meet with ONR program managers to present ideas for future research projects. In addition to engaging program managers one-on-one, faculty also received information about the direction of various ONR research programs, including key scientific challenges.
