Aim:  ONR Global recognizes that international scientists and engineers conduct creative and novel research. This Global-X Challenge provides an opportunity for these international researchers to collaborate, generate revolutionary ideas and demonstrate these ideas will succeed. ONR Global invites outstanding international researchers to form multi-national, multidisciplinary teams to address one or more of these capability challenges.

ONR Global is interested in promising concepts to achieve revolutionary capability advances with both military and commercial value in the multidisciplinary technology challenge areas described below:
  • Tailored Material and Manufacturing
  • Multifunctional Maritime Films for Persistent and Survivable Platforms
  • Object Detection and Identification in any Medium (Air, Water, Sand/Earth)

Funding:       max. $755’000*

Duration:      9 months*

*Additional ONR Global funding possible for an additional nine month optional research effort, following successful concept demonstration.

Eligibility: Researchers from academia and industry may participate. ONR Global expects, but does not require, that multi-national teams will consist of at least two research entities outside of the U.S., whether from academia, industry and/or the broad research community. Researchers from U.S. research entities may also participate, but are not required.

How to Apply: Teams must submit white papers describing their concept and approach. White papers should follow the template given by ONR and eventually be submitted to [email protected]. ONR Global will evaluate submitted white papers and will invite teams with the most promising and revolutionary concepts to submit a grant proposal. Further instructions will be given at that time.

White paper deadline: 25-May-2020, 23:59 EST
