The Story

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.
