This program serves a critical role in helping ENG focus on important emerging areas in a timely manner. This solicitation is a funding opportunity for interdisciplinary teams of researchers to embark on rapidlyadvancing frontiers of fundamental engineering research. For this solicitation, we will consider proposals that aim to investigate emerging frontiers in the following two research areas: 
- Advancing Communication Quantum Information Research in Engineering (ACQUIRE) 
- New Light and Acoustic Wave Propagation: Breaking Reciprocity and Time-Reversal Symmetry (NewLAW) 

Multidisciplinary Research Program of the University Research Initiative (MURI)

The MURI program supports basic research in science and engineering at U.S. institutions of higher education 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. By supporting multidisciplinary teams, the program is complementary to other DoD basic research programs that support university research through single-investigator awards.
