FY 2022 DoD Multidisciplinary Research Program of the University Research Initiative (MURI)

The Department of Defense has released the new Multidisciplinary Research Program of the University Research Initiative (MURI) Funding Opportunity Announcement. DoD's MURI program addresses high-risk basic research and attempts to understand or achieve something that has never been done before. The program was initiated over 25 years ago and it has regularly produced significant scientific breakthroughs with far reaching consequences to the fields of science, economic growth, and revolutionary new military technologies. Key to the program’s success is the close management of the MURI projects by Service program officers and their active role in providing research guidance.

This FOA contains detailed descriptions of topics and technical points of contact, therefore it is an excellent way to find program officers who are working in PI areas of interest.
