Grant Description

The Department of Defense (DoD) is soliciting applications from current/recent grant awardees to receive mentoring and funding to accelerate the innovation of the funded research. The I Corps @ DoD program is designed to support the acceleration of innovation by providing Principle Investigators (PIs) with training, mentorship and funding. The purpose of funding under this Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) is to accelerate the commercialization of basic research innovations from qualifying institutions. The goals of this program are to spur the transition of fundamental research, to encourage collaboration between academia and industry, and to train students to understand innovation and entrepreneurship. The purpose of the I Corps @ DoD program is to identify DoD-funded researchers who will receive additional support - in the form of mentoring and funding - to accelerate the transition of knowledge derived from fundamental research into emerging products and services that can attract subsequent third-party funding.
