SEED GRANT PROGRAM of THE JHU BLOOMBERG SCHOOL OF PUBLIC HEALTH
THE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT ACCELERATOR FUND
Do you have an innovation that you believe has real market potential?
The purpose of the Technology Development Accelerator Fund (TDAF) is to further the development of Bloomberg School of Public Health faculty innovations with commercial potential. Grants will be awarded on a competitive basis to projects that require, for example, additional prototype design to spur interest or make the technology ready for licensing. Requests for assistance in developing a commercialization strategy (business plan) are also appropriate. The technologies could include patentable inventions or copyrightable material, such as software or assessment tools. Suitable projects are typically those that are beyond the basic research stage and beyond the interest of most federal funding agencies. Proposals must demonstrate a high probability of making it from the lab to the marketplace. The TDAF is not generally intended to support “de novo” development of ideas on which no substantial work has yet been undertaken, nor is it meant to support copyrightable academic monographs or educational material.
Grants of up to $50,000 (no indirect costs will apply) will be awarded to researchers for projects up to 24 months in duration.
Please see below for application details.
Proposals should be submitted to Mary Marcenelle (email@example.com) on or before
