NSF MRI Reality Check Meeting

Wed, 09/02/2015 - 10:00am - 12:00pm
VPR Conference Room, 5PP, Room 3201

The Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI) serves to increase access to shared scientific and engineering instruments for research and research training in our Nation's institutions of higher education, museums, science centers, and not-for-profit organizations. This program especially seeks to improve the quality and expand the scope of research and research training in science and engineering, by providing shared instrumentation that fosters the integration of research and education in research-intensive learning environments.

Development and acquisition of research instrumentation for shared inter- and/or intra-organizational use are encouraged, as are development efforts that leverage the strengths of private sector partners to build instrument development capacity at academic institutions.
Submission Information:
The University is only allowed to submit three (3) proposals. Specifically, of those three at least one (1) must be a development proposal and two (2) can be acquisition proposals.
