Computational Materials Sciences 2015 FOA

A funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is posted for Computational Materials Sciences. Required letters of intent are due on February 23, 2015 at 5:00 PM Eastern Time. Full applications are due on April 17, 2015 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time.

Applications should propose integrated, multidisciplinary (theory, modeling, computation, synthesis, characterization, and processing/fabrication.) teams that will perform research to develop validated community codes and data bases for predictive design of functional materials, excluding structural materials. Computational Materials Sciences could also involve new approaches to enhance the use of large data sets derived from advanced characterization of materials, materials synthesis, processing, and properties assessments and the parallel data that are generated by large scale computational efforts that model materials phenomena. Computational Materials Sciences supports the Materials Genome Initiative (MGI).

Only one letter of intent and subsequent application are allowed per institution. In addition, an individual may not be named as the Project Director on more than one application. Both an open software distribution plan and a data management plan are required. For information on the full requirements for the applications, go to:
