NIOSH Robotics and Intelligent Mining Technology and Workplace Safety Research (U60)
National Institutes of Health
Funding Opportunity RFA-OH-23-005 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this NOFO is to solicit meritorious applications from universities with graduate degree programs in both mining and explosives engineering to develop and conduct research initiatives in automation, robotics, and intelligent mining systems to improve workplace safety and health in U.S. mining operations and to build on NIOSH's work to address Congress mandates in the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023. This research will contribute to the goal of eliminating mining fatalities within the next two decades.
