The Department of Defense recently released the FY14 Multidisciplinary University Research Initiatives (MURI).  There are 24 research topics available that span a variety of disciplines.  Each topic will be funded at approximately $1.5M/year for 5 years.  This program requires that you form a team consisting of 5-7 researchers from “multiple” disciplines, who are usually from “multiple” universities.  The program requires a 4 page pre-proposal or white paper to be submitted, and you are encouraged to contact the topic author(s) before submitting.  Please visit the MURI Grant Opportunity webpage for more details.
Dr. LaMattina will give a brief overview of the MURI process, statistics, and keys to success, followed by questions and open discussion at the workshop.  To submit a pre-proposal or white paper, please contact Bruce LaMattina at bruce.lamattina@rutgers.edu or 732-325-8547.
