The Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute is pleased to announce its annual HEMI Seed Grant Program. The goal of this program is to provide seed funding to advance the fundamental science associated with materials and structures under extreme conditions.
While all directions related to the HEMI mission will be considered, some directions of particular interest include:
- Structures in extreme environments, such as blast, extreme temperatures, impact/crash, natural hazards, disasters, nuclear events
- Materials behavior and performance in extreme environments, such as extreme temperatures or pressures, intense radiative environments, extreme electromagnetic fields
- High-power laser interactions with matter
- Materials and structures applications in planetary science and geophysics
- Applications of 3D printing or additive manufacturing techniques to design for dynamic or impact loadings
- Social science perspectives that relate to the broad HEMI mission
Eligibility: All faculty and researchers at the Johns Hopkins University, as well as Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) staff, who can serve as principal and co-investigators are eligible to apply.
Award: The total budget request for a faculty member or team may not exceed $25,000. The project period is up to one year.
Information and application instructions are on the HEMI website.
