MTEP MPAI RFP Webinar

The North Carolina Defense Manufacturing Communities Support Program invites you to Zoom webinar on January 31 at 1 pm, in which we will share details on an opportunity to pursue Department of Defense funding for projects to develop technologies that advance warfighter health and performance. The Medical Technology Enterprise Consortium (MTEC) recently issued a request for proposals related to its Military Performance Advancement Initiative (MPAI). The MPAI RFP has 3 main Focus Areas:

Prolonged Field Care
Medical Readiness
Maximizing Human Potential

The North Carolina Center for Optimizing Military Performance (NC-COMP) is coordinating RFP responses, including organizing teams to respond to different Research Areas.
In addition to the RFP, we will briefly introduce you to NC DMCSP, NC-COMP, and First Flight Venture Center, which provides assistance in pursuing SBIR/STTR grants and other opportunities for advancing technologies with DoD applications.
