Department of Defense Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI)
The Department of Defense Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative is a tri-service Department of Defense Program, part of the University Research Initiative.
The MURI program supports university teams whose research efforts link several traditional science and engineering disciplines. Multidisciplinary team efforts can accelerate research progress in areas particularly suited to the cross-fertilization of ideas by supporting team efforts across multiple universities. MURI grants typically range from $1.25 million to $1.5 million per year for three years and may be extended two more years as an option.
