Multidisciplinary Research Program of the University Research Initiative (MURI)
MURI supports basic research in the science and engineering areas intersecting more than one traditional discipline. The program is focused on multidisciplinary team efforts to address issues of critical concern to the DoD and the AF. The goal of this program is to advance defense research, accelerate technology transition, and educate scientists and engineers in the interdisciplinary areas important to national defense.
MURI is a DoD-wide program which complements other DoD programs that support university research through the single-investigator awards. The awards are typically for a period of three years with two additional years as options. New awards can be funded up to $1.5M per year, with the actual amount contingent upon the availability of funds, the specific topic and the scope of the proposed work. All the award selections result from a merit based competition of the proposals. Proposal submission is a two-stage process including white papers and full proposals.
The MURI 2016 Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is available on Grants.gov.
