EMERGING FRONTIERS IN RESEARCH AND INNOVATION (EFRI): Distributed Chemical Manufacturing (DCheM) and Engineering the Elimination of End-of-Life Plastics (E3P): The Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation (EFRI) program of the NSF Directorate for Engineering (ENG) serves a critical rolein helping ENG focus on important emerging areas in a timely manner. This solicitation is a funding opportunity for interdisciplinaryteams of researchers to embark on rapidly advancing frontiers of fundamental engineering research. For this solicitation, we willconsider proposals that aim to investigate emerging frontiers in one of the following two research areas: Distributed Chemical Manufacturing (DCheM) Engineering the Elimination of End-of-Life Plastics (E3P) This solicitation will be coordinated with the Directorate for Biological Sciences, the Directorate for Mathematical and Physical Sciencesand the Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences. EFRI seeks proposals with potentially transformative ideas that represent an opportunity for a significant shift in fundamental engineeringknowledge with a strong potential for long term impact on national needs or a grand challenge. The proposals must also meet thedetailed requirements delineated in this solicitation.
