About the Project
MxD is releasing a Request for Proposals targeted at academic institutions to aid in the development of early-stage (TRL 3-6) applied research in digital manufacturing and cybersecurity research in manufacturing. Through these investments, MxD seeks to partner with academia on early-stage technology and cybersecurity R&D to better define our technology road mapping, strategic investment planning, and preparation for future technology topics while also providing value to our academic and industry partners. Through early engagement with industry stakeholders, researchers will be able to better structure their work to have maximum impact in the future.
MxD and its industry members are most interested in the development of technologies in the following key cutting-edge domain areas: Physical Process Knowledge and Improvement, Digital Process Knowledge and Improvement, and Cybersecurity. MxD anticipates awarding multiple projects for both the Emerging Technologies in Manufacturing and Cybersecurity Research in Manufacturing for $75,000, not inclusive of the expected cost share.
