NSF Press Release

NSF has announced a $65.3M investment in 37 new DMREF awards supported by nine Divisions across the Directorates of Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS), Engineering (ENG) and Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE). Among this cohort, 13 awards include Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) collaborators through the NSF - Air Force Partnership in Advanced Material Sciences. “The DMREF program unifies the materials enterprise across NSF and other federal agencies offering a multidisciplinary funding opportunity that enables research teams to harness the power of data and machine learning and train the next generation workforce,” says Linda Sapochak, Division Director for the Division of Materials Research, and subcommittee co-chair for MGI. John Schlueter, DMREF program lead, is “excited by the diversity of this year’s cohort and the wide range of research topics that hold significant potential for societal impact”.
