Description:

NSF’s mission is to promote the progress of science to advance national health, prosperity and welfare. To fulfil this mission, the ENG directorate invests in engineering research and education to foster innovations for the benefit of society. Within ENG, the CMMI division’s goal is to enable the frontiers of civil, mechanical and manufacturing innovation research at scales ranging from nano to infrastructure. CMMI’s Advanced Manufacturing (AM) program supports transformative advances in manufacturing and materials processing and seeks basic research that applies innovative manufacturing technologies to accelerate new product development, customize products, increase production efficiency and reduce production cost. The AM program encourages multidisciplinary and convergent research that fundamentally transforms manufacturing practices by incorporating approaches beyond the customary manufacturing portfolio. The AM program engages industry through the GOALI program and through collaborations involving the Manufacturing USA institutes. At the international level, NSF-DFG collaborations in AM are sought. The AM program supports several related programs: the new Future Manufacturing (FM), which seeks research to enable manufacturing that does not exist today; LEAP HI, which promotes engineering leadership; ERCs, where center-level research is performed; CPS, which develops cyber-physical systems in many technical areas; and EFRI, which fosters emerging frontiers research initiatives to meet grand challenges. The AM program also has a role to play in some of NSF’s 10 Big Ideas, specifically, Rules of Life, Quantum Leap, Data Science and Growing Convergence. Being a FY22 White House priority, Advanced Manufacturing, coupled with AI, is positioned to move the frontiers of IotF.
