Project Call 3.0 Opens May 31, 2017. 

Project Call

Calling All Tech Visionaries and ‘Big Idea’ People

Along with developing the next generation workforce and promoting a sustainable advanced manufacturing ecosystem, NextFlex is also focused on accelerating technology innovation and commercialization through pre-competitive partnerships.

Via a series of Project Calls that provide cash awards to proposal teams for development projects that are critical to Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE) manufacturing, NextFlex underwrites up to 50% of the development costs of a project. The Project Call process follows a structured selection and rigorous oversight methodology to ensure diversity and breadth in the selection of projects funded.

Project Call 2.0 is currently closed.

Project Call (PC) 2.0 will continue to focus on the areas identified in the FHE Roadmap established by NextFlex. Topic areas for this proposal include projects that bridge industries such as pharmaceutical, food and agriculture with the Internet of Things (IoT), and wireless communications for real-time data and analysis on temperature, UV exposure, vibration, and other environmental conditions that can be critical for perishable commodity products. These capabilities will be key to delivering efficiency and intelligence not only to commercial sectors, but to American troops as well.
