NEx Call for Ideas for Project Funding in 2025

Dear Partners,

A heartfelt thank you to all for your ideas and proposals submitted last year! Your passion and dedication have truly fueled our mission to innovate and transform the construction industry. Since 2022, NEx has successfully sourced and funded sixty projects supporting nonmetallics in construction. 

As we set sail into 2025, we're excited to invite all stakeholders to submit project ideas and problem statements for potential funding.

Let's work together to drive sustainability, durability, and innovation in the industry. Your ideas matter – whether it's standards, research, technical advocacy, or professional development, we want to hear from you for all the applications that  cover  nonmetallic  materials including the following! Submit your ideas today and be a part of the change! 

Submission Guidelines

The idea proposals should align with at least one of the NEx core functions and scope. NEx expects to submit only the ideas/research needs and problem statement, and not the solution or any IP ideas. Additionally, we welcome proposals for co-funding opportunities for ongoing as well as new projects.
