NASA’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD) is pleased to announce a new opportunity for universities and their research partners to contribute toward NASA research goals. A solicitation for the University Leadership Initiative (ULI) is available on NSPIRES:
ARMD works with the aeronautics community to safely grow the air transportation system, reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions, and apply converging technologies to transform aviation. Research from the ULI will assist NASA in achieving the long-term aviation outcomes defined in the ARMD Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP): http://www.aeronautics.nasa.gov/pdf/armd-strategic-implementation-plan.pdf
Universities will be able to build diverse, multi-disciplinary teams that provide transformative solutions to system-level aeronautics problems. University-led teams will define the technical challenges needed to advance the strategic thrusts defined in the SIP. They will then lay out milestones and conduct the research activities needed to achieve their own technical challenges.
Please join us for an Applicant’s Workshop on Tues May 3, 2016 from 12:30-3:00 pm ET. The workshop will provide an opportunity for interested parties to better understand the solicitation’s intent, scope, and selection criteria. Interested parties are invited to submit their questions in advance to HQ-UnivPartnerships@mail.nasa.gov. During the workshop, NASA will first address questions received by 5:00 pm ET on Fri Apr 29, 2016. Additional questions will be considered as time permits.
Information on joining the forum (via phone and Adobe Connect) is available in Section 5.3.4 of the solicitation and on the ULI website, https://nari.arc.nasa.gov/uli We look forward to talking with you.
