Grants available to move technology forward

S&T’s office of technology transfer and economic development is offering Technology Acceleration Grants (TAG) to close the gap between university research and the needs of the customer. In many cases, an industry partner will require a working prototype, test results or the refinement of research. The application deadline is Friday, April 20.

This grant funding comes from the campus share of license royalty income directed to technology and economic development. Previous commercialized inventions, such as non-chrome coatings, wound care materials and super capacitors, are fueling future ideas.

Only projects in which the university holds an issued patent or in which a patent application is filed by the university are eligible. Technologies already licensed or in licensing negotiations with commercial partners are not eligible.

For more information or an application, please contact Keith Strassner, director of technology transfer, at, or John Woodson, senior licensing and business development associate, at, or Casey Gideon-Saladin, business support specialist, at
