The Research Office, Incentive Programs is requesting letters of intent for the NSF – Partnerships for Innovation: Building Innovation Capacity (PFI: BIC) program.
Deadline to the Research Office, Incentive Programs: Monday, August 13, 2012 by 5:00 PM
The PFI: BIC program starts with an existing sound scientific and/or engineering-based research discovery that can be translated through a partnership between academe and small businesses to potentially market-valued solutions and to enhance the innovation capacity of the partners. The funds will provide support to an academic institution to partner with at lease two small technology-based businesses that are not in direct competition with each other. The primary aims of the activities of this partnership are three-fold: (1) to build the innovation capacity of the individual participants from academe and from business; (2) to increase the viability of the small business concerns; and (3) to develop the next-generation workforce by providing opportunities for students at different levels to effectively learn from, participate in, and be profoundly changed by exposure to the process of building innovation capacity that occurs in BIC projects.
