The Advanced Materials, Processes, and Energy Devices (AMPED) and the Manufacturing, Automation and Data Engineering (MADE) Science and Technology Center (STC) are research and development centers at Arizona State University (ASU) supported by the Arizona New Economy Initiative (NEI). NEI is an investment in ASU’s assignment to drive Arizona’s future economic growth and resiliency through engineering and technology innovation and training. STCs are one component of NEI and are responsible for leveraging ASU-industry partnerships to enable research innovation, entrepreneurship, and tech transfer in areas key to the future of Arizona’s economy.

Both STCs are seeking proposals, due May 13, for projects that are collaborations between ASU researchers and industry partners. The STCs each anticipate making 5-7 awards in response to this funding opportunity announcement (FOA).

The AMPED STC seeks to create the materials and devices needed for broad electrification of the energy sector, and it has three thrust areas: photovoltaics, batteries, and power-electronic devices. The AMPED FOA can be found here.

The MADE STC seeks to create foundational manufacturing technologies and methods that enable new products and enhance manufacturing competitiveness, and it has three thrust areas: process science and engineering, robotics and automation, and data analytics, cyber, and AI. The MADE FOA can be found here.
