Summary:

The MURI program supports basic research in science and engineering at U.S. institutions of higher
education (hereafter referred to as "universities") that is of potential interest to DoD. The program is
focused on multidisciplinary research efforts where more than one traditional discipline interacts to
provide rapid advances in scientific areas of interest to the DoD. As defined by the DoD, “basic
research is systematic study directed toward greater knowledge or understanding of the fundamental
aspects of phenomena and of observable facts without specific applications towards processes or
products in mind. It includes all scientific study and experimentation directed toward increasing
fundamental knowledge and understanding in those fields of the physical, engineering, environmental,
and life sciences related to long-term national security needs. It is farsighted high payoff research that
provides the basis for technological progress.” (DoD 7000.14.R, vol. 2B, chap.5). DoD’s basic
research program invests broadly in many specific fields to ensure that it has early cognizance of new
scientific knowledge.
