CNSI has announced the next round of SEED-TECH funding aimed at technology translation.
The CNSI SEED-TECH Grants provide faculty with funding to support a demonstration of commercial value and/or commercial viability for UCSB technology, and to develop the technology towards a marketable outcome. Ultimately the SEED-TECH grants should enable one or more of the following:
- A spin-out company
- A new or expanded corporate sponsored research agreement
- A licensing deal for intellectual property
These awards can support direct costs of up to $50,000 over a period of 12 months. Up to 2 grants may be awarded in this round. Progress will be assessed via a combination of meetings and written reports.
