About the Project
MxD is releasing a Request for Proposals aimed at academic institutions to aid in the development of early-stage (TRL 3-6), applied research in digital manufacturing, and cybersecurity research in manufacturing. The proposals should focus on three key problem spaces that have been identified by MxD members as vital to advancing industry 4.0 digital engineering, manufacturing, and supply chain operations.
Proposals should address one of the following problem spaces: Intelligent Interoperability; Virtual Validation, Verification, and Conformity Assessment; and Supply Chain Connectivity for SMMs. Successful “Emerging Technology” projects have the potential to define larger, more specific, MxD research projects in the future. Proposals are strongly encouraged from academic institutions that are non-MxD members and Minority Serving Institutions.
Thursday, September 15, 2022, 5:00 p.m. CT.
Proposals must be submitted by teams, and MxD membership is not required for submission but will be required prior to project award. To facilitate project teaming, MxD will compile and disseminate contact information from parties interested in Team Formation during the first month of the proposal period.
If you are interested in submitting your contact info to this distribution list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Emerging Technology Information Session
Please join MxD's community for a virtual Projects Information Session on July 12, 2022. The purpose of this event is to provide organizations and/or teams the opportunity to learn more about the Emerging Technology program and RFP, MxD’s proposal process, and tips on developing a winning proposal.
