Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) Battery Materials Processing and Battery Manufacturing
The Office of Manufacturing and Energy Supply Chains (MESC) is issuing a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled Bipartisan Infrastructure Law 40207(b) Battery Materials Processing and 40207(c) Battery Manufacturing Grants Round II. Projects awarded under this FOA will be funded, in whole or in part, with funds appropriated by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, also more commonly known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL).
Deadline: March 19, 2024
Critical Materials Accelerator
The Critical Materials Accelerator aims to validate and prototype technologies and processes that address critical materials challenges by developing alternatives, diversifying and expanding supply, increasing manufacturing and material efficiency, and establishing a circular economy. The Accelerator intends to speed up the adoption of innovation while promoting safe, sustainable, economic, and environmentally just solutions to meet current and future critical materials supply chain needs.
This FOA solicits proposals that advance innovation to realize the Department’s critical minerals and materials vision of a reliable, resilient, affordable, diverse, sustainable, and secure domestic supply chains for the clean energy economy. Projects funded under this FOA will de-risk innovation and mature technology development in partnership with industry to reduce demand through alternative materials or technologies, extend the lifetime of critical materials, and advance secure and sustainable critical materials manufacturing technologies.
Deadline: March 22, 2024
Dahlgren University Research and Development (R&D) Projects and Capstone Projects
Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division is interested in receiving proposals for the following Basic and Applied Research Opportunity Areas:
- College - University Student and Faculty Research Projects (DD-01)
NSWCDD is interested in receiving proposals directed toward student and faculty general research projects where the focus is upon priority technologies and capabilities performed at NSWCDD. NSWCDD is especially, but not solely, interested in research projects dealing with Hypersonics, Software Engineering, Quantum Computing and Sensing, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Unmanned systems and Autonomy, Safety Systems, Human Systems Integration, and Warfare System Development and Integration which includes cyber security, directed energy, sensor systems, materials, chemical, biological, radiological (CBR) defense, and high powered microwaves among others.
- College - University Student Capstone and Senior Research Projects (DD-02)
NSWCDD seeks proposals for novel research projects whose intent is the development of future naval scientists and engineers. NSWCDD is especially interested in research projects in the areas of Hypersonics, Software Engineering, Quantum Computing and Sensing, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Unmanned systems and Autonomy, Safety Systems, Human Systems Integration, and Warfare System Development and Integration which includes cyber security, directed energy, sensor systems, materials, and high powered microwaves among others.
Other technology areas will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. The primary goal of these projects is to develop student interests in Naval engineering with an eye toward future employment.
Deadline: July 17, 2024
