Important Information for Proposers
A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 15-1), is
effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after December 26, 2014. The PAPPG is consistent
with, and, implements the new Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit
Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance) (2 CFR § 200). NSF anticipates release of
the PAPPG in the Fall of 2014. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date,
the guidelines contained in NSF 15-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this
The National Science Foundation (NSF) announces a solicitation on Technological Challenges in Organic Electronics, Photonics and Magnetics. This interdisciplinary research will foster interactions among various disciplines that will impact the field of organic/polymeric electronics, photonics and magnetics, thereby resulting in heretofore-unanticipated breakthroughs and enabling technologies. Organic electronics, photonics and magnetic devices integrated to intrinsic and hybridized systems, represent a highly promising interdisciplinary area of technology, that will provide greatly increased functionality and the potential to meet future challenges of scalability, flexibility, low power consumption, light weight, and reduced cost. This focused initiative seeks high-risk/high-return research proposals on novel concepts in organic electronics, photonics and magnetics. Emphasis will be placed on enabling technologies critical to the continued growth of organic electronics, photonics and magnetics in the next decade to address the scientific issues and technological challenges associated with the underpinnings of the technology.
