The University’s Technology Development Fund is accepting pre-proposal applications from Wednesday, Aug. 1, to Saturday, Sept. 1, for its sixth round of award funding. The fund promotes the transfer and translation of University research into commercial applications through monetary awards ranging from $40,000 to $100,000. In so doing, it enhances the University’s economic impact and its mission of active dissemination of knowledge to society.
The application has been streamlined, allowing therapeutics and vaccines proposals to be evaluated using updated criteria, increasing the chances for an award in this area.
