Grant Opportunity: The National Science Foundation (NSF) is now accepting proposals for their NSF Innovation Corps Hubs Program (I-Corps™ Hubs). This grant aims to expand the NSF’s I-Corps program which began in 2011 with a goal of translating promising ideas and technologies from the laboratory to the marketplace and commercialization. This funding will support the establishment of I-Corps™ Hubs, a consortia of institutions spanning a geographic region that will serve as an operational backbone that provides researchers with training on how to translate scientific discoveries into new market technologies, products, processes and services.

Proposals are accepted in two tracks depending on whether the applicant institution is a former I-Corp node or site.

Eligibility: U.S. institutions of higher education are eligible to apply.

Grant Amount and Grant Period: The maximum award amount is $3,000,000 per year with a grant period of up to five years.
