Tech connect spring 2014 translational research & support

  1. 1. Translational Research Funding Landscape & our support infrastructure
  2. 2. Translational Research Funding TechConnect Workshop IEI Mentorship Program NSF I-Teams Proposals Innovation Mgmt & Entrepreneurship (IME) Masters Technology Commercialization Certificate SBIR/STTR Phase I MADV Proposals Fox Management Consulting (FMC) Program
  3. 3. Translational Research Funding  Short (6-page) proposals  6 months, $50k / team  Goal: Assess Technical & Commercial Opportunity  15-page feasibility analysis  6 Months, < $150k / Project  Assess Technical Merit, Feasibility, & Commercial Potential TechConnect Workshop IEI Mentorship Program NSF I-Teams Proposals Innovation Mgmt & Entrepreneurship (IME) Masters Technology Commercialization Certificate SBIR/STTR Phase I MADV Proposals Fox Management Consulting (FMC) Program
  4. 4. NSF I-Teams Proposals • I-Team Team – Entrepreneurial Lead (EL) – I-Corps Teams Mentor – Principal Investigator (PI) • Proposal (Letter of Interest) – 1-Page Executive Summary – Composition & roles (EL, PI, Mentor) of the team members proposing to undertake the – Commercialization feasibility research – Relevant current/previous NSF awards – Brief description of the potential commercial impact – Brief description of the current commercialization plan
  5. 5. NSF I-Teams Proposals • Phone Interview – Viable commercialization  NSF conference call – Assess team's capabilities & commitment to the program – May be invited to submit full proposal • Proposal – Project Summary (1 page) – Project Description (5 pages) – I-Corps Team (2 page limit) – Lineage of the Proposed Innovation (1 page limit) – Description of the Commercial Impact (1 page limit) – Brief description of the project plan (1 page limit)
