Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers (MRSEC) Information Session

Mark your calendars for the Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers (MRSEC)s information session.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is gearing up to unveil a major funding announcement in Fall 2024 to establish new Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers (MRSECs). These centers support interdisciplinary materials research and education addressing fundamental problems in science and engineering. MRSECs foster groundbreaking research and offer sustained support for university-based materials research. 

We are launching an internal limited submission process and associated planning to provide ample time to put forth a competitive MRSEC pre-proposal in 2025. We expect to select two or three interdisciplinary research groups (IRGs) by Summer 2024, after initial selections in late Spring 2024.

The IMAT team is conducting a 90-minute workshop to discuss this funding opportunity, the internal selection process, the overall timeline, and more. The overarching goal of this workshop is to start the process of defining teams that we will lead the several interdisciplinary research groups. Please plan to attend and leave with key takeaways to win this major funding opportunity from NSF!

The session will be recorded for those that cannot attend. If you have questions about the session, please contact Martin Mourigal.
