ERC NSF Engineering Research Center (ERC) The goal of the ERC Program is to integrate engineering research and education with technological innovation to transform national prosperity, health, and security. ERCs create an innovative, inclusive culture in engineering to cultivate new ideas and pursue engineering discovery that achieves a significant science, technology, and societal outcome within the 10-year timeframe of NSF support. For information on individual ERCs and their achievements, go to: ERC-assoc.org. Those who submit proposals in response to this solicitation will need to address the following questions: What is the compelling new idea and how does it relate to national needs? Why is a center necessary to tackle the idea? How will the ERC's infrastructure integrate and implement research, workforce development and innovation ecosystem development efforts to achieve its vision? Scope Very large multi-university entity

fuse technologies from different technological bases which are historical siloed, and that are intrinsically sustainable and scalable to meet the Terawatt Challenge. Engineering Research Center Arizona State University in partnership with the California Institute of Technology, the University of Delaware, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the University of New Mexico Christiana Honsberg, Director Harry Atwater, Deputy Director Matthew Fraser, Executive Director QESST Three Level Strategic Plan QESST Organizational Chart Discussion and Brainstorming Is something of this magnitude feasible for us to even consider?
Perhaps, given right partners and resources, but need to start planning now for Fall 2017 submission. What is the compelling new idea and how does it relate to national needs? Photonics certainly fits this bill, and AIMPhotonics has made this case successfully. Wide or limited area focus within photonics Wide: FPI is wide focus, BUT, will this work to provide a strong engineered system concept with compelling vision? Limited: an ERC focused on specific areas within photonics that can together represent a combination of components working in synergy to collectively perform a useful function Relevant efforts already in progress: QESST: solar energy focused Advanced Self-Powered Systems of Integrated Sensors and Technologies (ASSIST) Nanomanufacturing Systems for Mobile Computing and Mobile Energy Technologies (NASCENT) Discussion and Brainstorming
What is our Engineered System? What is our Vision? Who are our Partners? Thoughts on a 3-plane diagram?
