1. Scalable Nanomanufacturing (SNM) - NSF
Solicitation: NSF 12-544
Division of Materials Research
Full Proposal Deadline(s) (due by 5 p.m. proposer's local time): June 04, 2012The
National Science Foundation (NSF) announces a second year of a program on
collaborative research and education in the area of scalable nanomanufacturing,
including the long-term societal implications of the large-scale implementation of
nanomanufacturing innovations. This program is in response to and is a component of
the National Nanotechnology Initiative Signature Initiative: Sustainable
Nanomanufacturing - Creating the Industries of the Future
(http://www.nano.gov/node/611). Although many nanofabrication techniques have
demonstrated the ability to produce relatively small quantities of nanomaterials and
devices, the emphasis of this program is research that supports the identification and
demonstration of nanomanufacturing processes with high potential to scale to
economically and industrially relevant production levels. The mode of support is
Nanoscale Interdisciplinary Research Teams (NIRT). Proposals submitted to this
program must address at least one, and preferably more than one, of the following
interconnected themes:

      Novel processes and techniques for continuous and scalable
       nanomanufacturing;
      Directed (e.g. physical/chemical/biological) self-assembly processes leading to
       heterogeneous nanostructures with the potential for high-rate production;
      Fundamental scientific research in well-defined areas that are compellingly
       justified as critical roadblocks to scale-up;
      Principles and design methods to produce machines and processes to
       manufacture nanoscale structures, devices and systems; and/or
      Long-term societal and educational implications of the large-scale production and
       use of nanomaterials, devices and systems, including the life-cycle analysis of
       such nanomaterials, devices and systems.

9. Advanced Software Engineering Technologies for the Software Producibility
Initiative – Air Force
SOL: BAA-RIK-12-06
Background On behalf of the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), Office of the
Assistant Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering (OASD(R&E)), the Air
Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) is seeking white papers for Advanced Software
Engineering TechnologieS (ASETS) as part of the Software Producibility Initiative
(SWPI). SWPI is an ongoing program with the overall goal of improving the Department
of Defense’s (DoD's) ability to design, build, test, and sustain software-intensive systems
that are large-scale, high complexity, highly reliable, and operate in relevant military
environments, which meet mission critical requirements, safety critical requirements as
well as exhibit predictable behavior. Within SWPI, the ASETS BAA focuses on
discovering and adapting cutting-edge ideas in computer science, mathematics, and
information science to the production of military software. ASETS seeks to improve the
producibility of software-intensive systems that directly support the Warfighter and
operate in the most demanding military environments. Producibility may be defined as
the capacity to design, produce, assure and evolve software-intensive systems in a
predictable manner while effectively managing risk, cost, schedule, quality, and
complexity. Synopsis

Synopsis

11.Innovative Food Defense Program (R18) – NIH
Solicitation: PAR-12-116
Due:June 15, 2012
The Innovative Food Defense Program (IFDP) grants are designed to generate food
defense tools and resources that are easily replicated and can complement, aid in the
development of, or improve State, local, Tribal and territorial (SLTT) food defense
programs. The known overlap between food safety (unintentional contamination) and
food defense (intentional contamination) is extensive and the pool of resources available
is often the same. As the Food Safety Modernization Act recognizes the evolution of the
relationship between food safety and food defense, it is critical that these programs be
integrated to the maximum extent possible in order to ensure the most efficient use of
resources, as well as to optimize response to an incident or event.
