AMENDMENT NO. 8 TO THE NASA RESEARCH ANNOUNCEMENT (NRA) ENTITLED “EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES IN NASA STEM (EONS) 2019,”
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Office of Education is accepting proposals under the Education Opportunities in NASA STEM (EONS) 2019 NASA Research Announcement. This is an umbrella announcement for opportunities under the Minority University Research and Education Program, (MUREP), which includes a call for proposals for the following program element: Appendix H, MUREP Aerospace High-Volume Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management Cooperative.
MUREP in collaboration with NASA the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD) requires three (3) U.S. Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) to lead post-secondary education teams that will collaborate with other domestic entities including small businesses, to analyze and address gaps in the U.S. aerospace manufacturing supply chain ecosystem through the goals of the program.
The goals of MUREP Aerospace High-Volume Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management Cooperative awards are to 1. Develop a significant scientific, engineering, and/or technology manufacturing and supply chain network led by MSIs that align with aerospace (NASA and/or industry) high- manufacturing and supply chain ecosystem needs for national competitiveness. 2. The network will demonstrate strong collaboration with MSIs, develop/provide technical degree/certification programs, leverage relationships with small businesses and government to study gaps, and prepare students for opportunities in the aerospace high-volume manufacturing supply chain ecosystem. The effort will also contribute to the alignment of the next generation workforce to emerging trends and the needs of the aerospace industry supplier base, while expanding the nation's employee base for aerospace high-volume manufacturing and supply chain ecosystem and development as defined by NASA’s ARMD. 3. Support the development of entrepreneurship and students’ ability to commercialize high-volume manufacturing and supply chain principals related to aerospace by guiding students to become leaders and entrepreneurs in this ecosystem.
This amendment creates Appendix H. On or about May 15, 2019, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Education Opportunities in NASA STEM (EONS) 2019" NNH18ZHA008C-MUREPARMD will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/
Questions concerning Appendix H, MUREP Aerospace High-Volume Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management Cooperative Agreement may be directed to Mr. Clarence Bostic, MUREP Aerospace High-Volume Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management Cooperative Activity Manager, NASA Langley Research Center, Mail Stop #033, Hampton, VA 23681, Email: MUREPARMD@nasaprs.com
