Research Call to DOE and Federal Laboratories for SSL Core Technologies

February 27, 2009

Under funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the U.S. Department of Energy has released a Research Call to DOE and Federal Laboratories for Solid-State Lighting (SSL) Core Technologies on February 27, 2009. The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Building Technologies Program, is seeking applications from all DOE National Laboratories, National Science Research Centers, Department of Defense Laboratories or any other Federal Laboratory for applied research in the SSL Core Technology Research program area. Core technology research focuses on applied research needed to advance SSL technologies, providing problem-solving knowledge and data needed to overcome barriers identified in the “Program Areas of Interest” section of the Research Call.

For industry, universities, and other interested research organizations, DOE expects to release funding opportunities for Round 6 Core Technology Research and Product Development in Spring 2009.
