DoD Awards $162 Million in University Research Funding via MURI program


The Defense Department will issue 23 awards totaling $162 million over the next five years to academic institutions to perform multidisciplinary basic research.

The Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative program, or MURI, supports research by teams of investigators that intersect more than one traditional science and engineering discipline in order to accelerate research progress.

Most of the program’s efforts involve researchers from multiple academic institutions and academic departments.  54 academic institutions are expected to participate in 23 research efforts in the FY 2016 cohort.
