The UW AMIC is soliciting proposals for short-term, collaborative research projects that address a current or anticipated need in advanced materials and/or manufacturing. This year’s theme is on materials science and data.

Proposals are intended to address an industry-solicited challenge area. Projects will be awarded for one academic year (8 month project period), with the potential for renewal.  Projects will be conducted by a small team of UW-Madison graduate students / postdocs and will be advised by a UW-Madison faculty member. Typically, projects will support a small amount of effort per student / postdoc per year of your existing stipend, as well as supplies and equipment, and a small amount of research funding for the faculty advisor. All awarded projects will submit a report to the AMIC board of directors, with anticipated dissemination of research results either at the end of the project period, or at the AMIC annual meeting in a members-only closed session, or at another event open to AMIC members only. With current resources it is anticipated that 1-3 projects (up to ~$15,000/project) will be awarded.
