Request for Proposals – NanoES Research Initiatives
The NanoES Institute offers 35,000 square feet of labs (including wet and optical space), offices, meeting rooms, communal areas, and extremely low vibration/EMI areas in a brand-new building. This space creates an opportunity to scale up ongoing research efforts with strong momentum and to create new, high-impact programs or shared instrumentation facilities. To this end, NanoES is announcing a request for proposals. We are seeking inventive, well-thought-out ideas to leverage this space for maximum effect including, but not limited to, new center efforts and hiring initiatives endorsed by department chairs.
