UCONN SPARK TECHNOLOGY COMMERCIALIZATION FUND: Encouraging Innovation and Entrepreneurship

UCoSPARKnn seeks to position itself as a leader in innovation and entrepreneurship.

The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) SPARK Technology Commercialization Fund aims to support innovative proof-of-concept studies seeking to translate research discoveries into commercial applications, products, and/or medical treatments.  We invite proposals from all UConn / UConn Health campuses and across all disciplines for projects related to commercialization activities. We are eager to identify and support UConn-created inventions and technologies that address unmet needs and have great potential for commercial application.

More information about the grant process is coming soon.
