Program Name
The Missouri Transect Seed Funding: Technology Transfer/Commercialization
 
Description
Proof of concept seed funding is available for Missouri Transect investigators that have developed a key discovery or innovation in the course of their research and have identified a possible pathway toward commercialization.  Those applications demonstrating a high probability for commercialization as a project deliverable will receive preferential consideration.  Proof of concept can be different for specific technologies – in some cases it may be building a prototype or minimally viable product while in other cases it may mean demonstrating market demand for a particular technology.  Regardless of definition, seed funds are intended to accelerate movement of new innovations to commercialization pathways. Proposals with good probability for moving a product, process, and/or device toward commercialization are invited for funding consideration.  Proposals should include technology assessment, market assessment, intellectual property disposition, team qualifications, and commercialization strategy. A copy of invention disclosure forms (or equivalent) should be included in the Appendix. Awards are limited to $50,000 for one year and require a 1:1 match in non-federal funding.
 
Eligibility
Missouri EPSCoR investigators are eligible to apply.
 
Award Amount and Duration
The total project budget should be a maximum of $50,000 in direct costs over a span of 12 months.
