May 23, 2017

The National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) has posted a Notice of Funding Opportunity for “Maximizing Technology Commercialization of Federal Research Investments through Best Practices at Innovation and Economic Prosperity Universities.” The application is deadline is July 10.

The program will support one project for one year (approximately $300,000), focused on evaluating commercialization practices at universities that have been designated by APLU as Innovation and Economic Prosperity Universities (IEPUs), “for their approaches to innovation and technology commercialization and to review and evaluate existing technology-based collaborations between IEPUs and technology development entities, including Federal research laboratories (FRLs).

The recipient is expected to: (1) research and broadly disseminate a set of best practice recommendations for increased innovation, commercialization, technology transfer, entrepreneurship and regional partnering and development activities based on the specific activities of IEPUs; (2) identify existing collaboration networks or clusters of IEPUs and technology development entities, including FRLs; (3) identify overlaps and gaps in the technology-based collaboration networks between IEPUs and technology development entities; (4) recommend six pilot projects for new or expanded technology development networks or clusters of IEPUs and technology development entities, including FRLs; and (5) develop an analysis of the potential economic impact of the six pilots and a plan for longer term scale-up, to aid in future resource prioritization.”
