NSF Webinar - Technology Translation (PFI:AIR-TT) program

NSF Webinar - Technology Translation (PFI:AIR-TT) program

PFI:AIR-TT Webinar on Thursday, July 30 at 2pm EDT

The Partnerships for Innovation: Accelerating Innovation Research – Technology Translation (PFI:AIR-TT) program. The acronym is complicated. The idea is simple—provide funds for NSF researchers to move their discoveries closer to commercial reality

This funding is akin to proof of concept, that is, provision of funds for NSF researchers to move their discoveries forward, in readiness for licensing/investment or commercial development via startup.  The Urbana campus has had I-POC funding over recent years so this is another opportunity to obtain additional and scarce funding for such activity.

For faculty wishing to submit proposals for this program, Lesley Millar-Nicholson through the Office of Technology Management is intending to put together a package of resources such as commercialization assessments, marketing/industry analysis, entrepreneur in residence support. The details of this support are being worked out and will be separately announced.

Please circulate details of the webinar and Enterpreneurship Portal to interested faculty and staff.
