Deadline Nears to Submit Concept Papers for New Manufacturing Innovation Institute
Posted on: 07/23/2013
The U.S. Office of Naval Research (ONR) has announced that it is accepting concept papers for establishing and sustaining a Lightweight and Modern Metals Manufacturing Innovation (LM3I) Institute as part of the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI). Full submission instructions can be accessed in the “For More Information” section at the end of this article. The deadline for concept papers is August 9, 2013. Concept papers that are deemed of “particular value” will receive invitations for full proposals.
The intent of LM3I is to advance the state of processing and fabrication technologies for lightweight and modern metals by facilitating the transition between basic/early research and full-scale production of associated materials, components, and systems. A particular focus is manufacturing advancements that will spur the integration of new material, component, and system designs for defense and commercial applications. Proposals must describe the proposed infrastructure, technical applications, and a sustainable business plan for LM3I. This includes providing detailed example research project areas and technology transition plans supporting U.S. Department of Defense and other high value government and commercial applications.
