NIST MEP Competitive Awards Program: NIST invites applications from current MEP Centers to add capabilities to the MEP Program, including the development of projects to solve new or emerging manufacturing problems, that are not already provided for under an applicant's and its collaborating Center's base MEP award. Themes for FY 17 include new manufacturing technologies of relevance to small and mid-size manufacturers, particularly those related to Industry/Manufacturing 4.0 (these technologies are described more fully in Section I.1. below); supply chain management technologies and practices; and workforce intermediary and business services. However, so long as an application addresses the program priorities listed in Section I.2. of the Full Announcement/NOFO, it need not focus upon any of the identified thematic areas to be considered for funding under this Full Announcement/NOFO.
