New ATP Solicitation Forthcoming

February 26, 2007

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recently announced the Advanced Technology Program (ATP) will conduct a new competition in fiscal year 2007 for cost-shared awards to support high-risk industrial R&D.

The ATP provides brief support to single companies or to industry-led joint ventures to accelerate the development of innovative technologies for broad national benefit through partnership with the private sector. ATP projects are selected in a competitive, peer-reviewed process.

Further details will be available when the competition is formally announced in the Federal Register this spring. Proposals will not be accepted before that time. Notices containing specific information, such as anticipated funding, eligibility criteria and proposal deadlines, also will be posted to www.atp.nist.gov and www.grants.gov.

Additionally, all of those on the ATP mailing list will receive a competition announcement and the ATP Proposal Preparation Kit. Those interested in registering for the ATP mailing list may do so at www.atp.nist.gov/atp/atpform.htm.
