Partnerships for Innovation: Building Innovation Capacity

Deadline: December 12, 2012

National prosperity today has become more dependent upon research and technology.  By establishing and expanding partnerships, existing research discovery findings from institutions of higher education can be translated to innovations.  This program solicitation, Partnerships for Innovation: Building Innovation Capacity (PFI: BIC) starts with an existing sound scientific and/or engineering-based research discovery that can be translated to market-valued solutions through a partnership between academe and small technology-based businesses. The funds will provide support to an academic institution to partner with at least two small technology-based businesses that are not in direct competition with each other to carry out early translational-research activities.
