The NSF Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation (EFRI) program invites supplemental funding requests for translational research efforts to foster innovation and maximize the technological impact of projects in the area of Origami Design for Integration of Self-assembling Systems for Engineering Innovation (ODISSEI).
Through Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) NSF 17-039, Principal Investigators with active ODISSEI awards are encouraged to partner with industry in an effort to move their discoveries towards practical applications with proof-of-concept demonstrations.
The deadline for these supplemental funding requests is February 15, 2017.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering.
