Important Information for Proposers

ATTENTION: Proposers using the Collaborators and Other Affiliations template for more than 10 senior project personnel will encounter proposal print preview issues. Please see the Collaborators and Other Affiliations Information website for updated guidance.

A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 17-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 30, 2017. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 17-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.




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.
