Subject: NSF Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education (NUE) in Engineering
Nominations are due at the Graduate School on March 25;
Deadline for internal competition is: To Be Determined.
The Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education (NUE) in Engineering program aims to integrate advancements in nanoscale science, engineering, and technology into the undergraduate engineering curricula. The NUE in Engineering program provides funding for projects that will address the educational challenges of these emerging fields and generate practical ways of introducing nanotechnology into undergraduate engineering education with a focus on devices and systems and/or on social, economic, and ethical issues relevant to nanotechnology. Given the worldwide expansion of research and education in NSE, international collaborations that advance underlying NSE education goals and strengthen U.S. activities are encouraged. The focus of the FY 2014 competition is on nanoscale engineering education with relevance to devices and systems and/or on the societal, ethical, economic and/or environmental issues relevant to nanotechnology.
The lead PI must hold a faculty appointment within the College/Dept. of Engineering or College/Dept. of Engineering Technology within the submitting US academic institution.
Each award will be up to a maximum of $200,000 for two years.
The number of proposals UW–Madison may submit as lead institution is limited to one.
A second proposal may be submitted if it is focused on the societal, ethical, economic and/or environmental issues relevant to nanotechnology.
This contains additional information on the program and specific application instructions, etc.
