NSF – Future of Semiconductors (FuSe)- Deadline July 18th 2022

Future of Semiconductors – Teaming for Co-Design Research Capacity (FuSe Teaming Grants) (FuSe)

The goal of this solicitation is to cultivate a broad coalition of researchers from across science and engineering communities to utilize a holistic, co-design approach to fundamental research and education and training, to enable rapid progress in new semiconductor technologies. Proposals are sought to support team-formation to articulate co-design visions for the future.

Initially, team formation is directed to the following three research areas identified for support in FY 2022 under this solicitation:

  1. Collaborative Research in Domain-Specific Computing
  2. Advancing Function and Achieving High-Performance from Heterointegration
  3. New Materials for Energy Efficient, Enhanced-performance and Sustainable Semiconductor-based Systems

Awards will provide up to two years of support for up to $100,000 per participating organization on the proposal with a minimum of three organizations. Proposals can address any of the three topic areas above, or another research problem requiring co-design in the broad area of semiconductors.
