Funding Opportunity: SUNY Technology Accelerator Fund Accepting Proposals
November 22, 2016
The application period for the SUNY Technology Accelerator Fund Class of 2017 is now open.
The SUNY Technology Accelerator Fund (TAF) provides investments to support the advancement of SUNY innovations from the lab to the marketplace. TAF investments are made on a highly competitive basis in projects that target critical research and development milestones, such as feasibility studies, prototyping and testing, which demonstrate that an idea or innovation has commercial potential.
Faculty, staff, and students from all disciplines and campuses are encouraged to submit proposals for the SUNY Technology Accelerator Fund Class of 2017 funding. The deadline for submitting proposals is March 20, 2017. See TAF Class of 2017 Application and Administrative Guidelines.
Please be advised that all proposals require the review and participation of your campus administration prior to submission. To be certain that you adhere to any local proposal submission deadlines, you are urged to immediately contact your technology transfer office and/or office of sponsored programs if you are interested in applying for TAF Class of 2017 funding.
Jointly funded by the State University of New York and the Research Foundation, the Technology Accelerator Fund has invested over $2 million since its launch in April 2011, and brought to life 36 of SUNY’s most promising technologies by catalyzing the investment of an additional $4.1 million from external partners, including federal agencies, industry licensees and angel investors. To learn about the technologies in which TAF has invested and the people who made it happen, see Technology Accelerator Funded Projects.
