NSF Seeks Proposals for Next Generation Supply Chain Research

NSF Seeks Proposals for Next Generation Supply Chain Research

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to major dislocations in global supply and demand, exposing vulnerabilities in almost every supply chain and putting into focus their importance to the functioning of civil society. The need for improvements to supply chains is specifically highlighted in the recent National Strategy for Advanced Manufacturing and Executive Order on America’s Supply Chains.
 
With this Dear Colleague Letter (DCL), the Operations Engineering (OE), Engineering Design and Systems Engineering (EDSE), Advanced Manufacturing (AM), and Manufacturing Systems Integration (MSI) programs announce their interest in receiving research proposals seeking to significantly advance our understanding of global supply chains, especially their ability to provide industrial goods, critical healthcare and medical products, consumer products, and key services reliably and equitably under a wide variety of operating conditions, including disruptions and emerging threats. Proposals addressing research questions of interest to multiple programs are especially encouraged.
 
Research proposals in a wide range of areas and employing diverse methods are encouraged. Projects must focus on fundamental research that advances the scientific understanding of supply chains and must be responsive to one or more of the core programs listed above. Interested proposers should prepare and submit proposals in accordance with the instructions for the relevant CMMI core programs (Operations Engineering, Engineering Design and Systems Engineering, Advanced Manufacturing, and Manufacturing Systems Integration) and the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG). Additionally, to call attention to responsiveness to this DCL, the project title should start with “SupplyChainDCL:.” For consideration for FY23 funding, PIs are encouraged to submit proposals by June 1, though proposals will continue to be considered beyond that date.
