This program helps bridge the gap between University innovations and the marketplace by funding research and development that will demonstrate an innovation’s market viability to potential investors and partners.
I-POC projects consist of a defined set of milestones that, when completed, help overcome a specific hurdle to an innovation’s transfer outside of the University.
The I-POC Fund is made possible by contributions from the following colleges & units and matching funds from the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research. The I-POC Fund is currently open to projects that originate from a participating college or unit. However, if you would like to apply for funding and do not see your college listed, please contact the Office of Technology Management.
