The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) announced a 2009 competition for multiyear research funding in two major areas of national interest, civil infrastructure and manufacturing, under its Technology Innovation Program (TIP). TIP expects to provide cost-shared funding for approximately 25 new R&D projects.

TIP officials plan to allocate approximately US$15 million in first-year funding for R&D projects in manufacturing that would enable better, more cost-effective use of advanced materials in innovative products. High-strength alloys, aluminum and magnesium are used to build stronger, lighter and safer vehicles; superalloys are used to make higher efficiency gas turbines; composites make larger, more efficient wind turbine blades and higher performance aircraft; and nanomaterials are finding their way into better performing batteries, energy storage devices, high voltage transmission lines and healthcare applications.

The 2009 TIP competition addresses improved technologies to produce new materials and to rapidly integrate them into products. The 2009 TIP competition will be limited to technologies for nanomaterials; composites; and superalloys, alloys and smart materials—the three classes of materials considered most critical to potential growth areas for manufacturing.
