Old Funded Awards

Subject to the availability of funding, the AMTech program intends to conduct competitions and issue awards for grants of two types and on an ongoing basis to industry-driven research consortia: planning awards and project awards.

  • Planning Awards: Establish and strengthen industry-focused research consortia and to develop shared vision technology roadmaps of industry's research needs.
  • Project Awards: Basic and applied research funding to consortia to facilitate the realization of clearly stated long-term, pre-competitive industrial research needs.

It is NIST's vision that AMTech will represent a sustainable agent that incentivizes the formation of and provides resources to industry-led consortia that have as their goal the development of a shared technology infrastructure that supports advances in advanced manufacturing for U.S. industries.

Awards issued to date from completed AMTech competitions include the following:
