Description

The National Science Foundation is offering a grant opportunity titled "Ideas Lab: Breaking the Low Latency Barrier for Verticals in Next-G Wireless Networks". This grant aims to address critical architectural, technical, and technological issues in fifth-generation (5G) and next-generation (Next-G) wireless networks to provide low-latency performance for emerging vertical industries. The current public cellular deployments are unable to consistently support end-to-end latencies below 10 milliseconds, which is necessary for the success of these industries. The grant seeks to identify cost-effective novel approaches to overcome these hurdles and develop advanced wireless networks that meet the low-latency and high-reliability demands of specific vertical applications. The Ideas Lab Workshop, a three-day intensive meeting, will bring together experts and stakeholders to collaboratively develop potential solutions. The goal is to stimulate creative thinking and collaborative spirit to develop and validate innovative low-latency communications technologies that will transform the way we live and interact. Robust partnerships between academia and industry are encouraged to co-design solutions and accelerate the adoption of the resultant solutions.

Ideas Lab: Advancing Cell-Free Systems Toward Increased Range of Use-Inspired Applications
National Science Foundation
The National Science Foundation is offering a grant opportunity titled "Ideas Lab: Advancing Cell-Free Systems Toward Increased Range of Use-Inspired Applications". This grant aims to accelerate the adoption of cell-free systems, enable new applications of this technology, and contribute to the growth of the U.S. bioeconomy. Cell-free systems allow biochemical processes to be carried out in vitro instead of in traditional cell-based bio-reactors, offering advantages such as rapid turn-around, distributed manufacturing, and high-fidelity control. However, cell-free manufacturing is currently more expensive and has a limited range of applications. The grant seeks to reduce the cost of cell-free systems, increase their capabilities, and develop cost-effective use-inspired applications. The grant will focus on specific use cases and aims to demonstrate the feasibility and advantages of cell-free systems, create infrastructure components, and invest in workforce training. The grant will use the Ideas Lab process to bring together diverse perspectives and identify opportunities to improve cell-free systems.
