New Funding Opportunity for High Performance Computing for Increased Energy Efficiency in Manufacturing and Material Development
Oct 31, 2019
The new fall 2019 funding opportunity seeks industry partners aiming to increase energy efficiency in manufacturing and material development. “Partner collaborations will address key challenges in U.S. manufacturing and material development by applying modeling, simulation, and data analysis to relevant problems with the intent to improve energy efficiency, increase productivity, reduce cycle time, enable next-generation technologies, test control system algorithms, investigate intensified processes, lower energy cost, and accelerate innovation.” Qualified partners will participate in short-term, collaborative projects with the DOE’s national laboratories and will be granted access to DOE’s high performance computing (HPC) facilities and staff.
Eligible industry partners must manufacture products or operate systems in the United States for commercial applications. Awards will be made for projects with one-year durations and each project will be awarded up to $300,000 to support computing cycles and work performed by the national lab partners. This is a public-private partnership in both scope and funding and requires industry partners to contribute at least 20 percent of the total project funding.
This joint solicitation will mark the ninth solicitation for the HPC4Mfg program and the fourth for the HPC4Mtls program. Interested parties can find more information on the upcoming funding opportunity by viewing the official solicitation and must submit proposals by November 22, 2019.
