The MURI program supports basic research in science and engineering at U. S. institutions of higher education (hereafter referred to as "universities") that is of potential interest to DoD.
The program is focused on multidisciplinary research efforts where more than one traditional discipline
interacts to provide rapid advances in scientific areas of interest to the DoD.
As defined in the DoD Financial Management Regulation:Basic research is systematic study directed toward greater knowledge or understanding of the fundamental aspects of phenomena and of observable facts without specific applications towards processes or products in mind.
It includes all scientific study and experimentation directed toward increasing fundamental knowledge and understanding in those fields of the physical, engineering, environmental, and life sciences related to long-term national security needs.
It is farsighted high payoff research that provides the basis for technological progress (DoD 700 0. 14-R, vol.
05020 1. B).DoD’s basic research program invests broadly in many specific fields to ensure that it has early cognizance of new scientific knowledge.DoD’s basic research program invests broadly in many fields to ensure that it has early cognizance of new scientific knowledge.

Army Submission InformationAdditional Information of Eligibility:
This MURI competition is open only to, and full proposals are to be submitted only by, U. S. institutions of higher education (universities) including DoD institutions of higher education, with degree-granting programs in science and/or engineering.
To the extent that it is a part of a U. S. institution of higher education and is not designated as a Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC), a University Affiliated Research Center (UARC) or other University Affiliated Laboratory (UAL) is eligible to submit a proposal to this MURI competition and/or receive MURI funds.
However, the eligibility of a UAL (other than a FFRDC) to submit a URI proposal does not exempt the proposal from any evaluation factor contained in this FOA.
Ineligible organizations (e.g., industry, DoD laboratories, FFRDCs, and foreign universities) may collaborate on the research but may not receive MURI funds directly or via subaward.
When a modest amount of additional funding for an ineligible organization is necessary to make the proposed collaboration possible, such funds may be requested via a separate proposal from that organization.
This supplemental proposal shall be attached to the primary MURI proposal and will be evaluated separately by the responsible Research Topic Chief.
If approved, the supplemental proposal may be funded by the responsible agency using non-MURI funds.Full Opportunity Web Address:http://www.arl.army.mil/www/default.cfm?page=8Contact: Agency Email Description:
