We also have a pilot program, the Innovation Award also due.This award provides critical resources for projects that take a new direction, utilize a new technology or are in the “proof-of-concept” phase. Undergraduate & graduate students and faculty researchers can participate, with a preference given to graduate students and faculty who are developing new areas of research and/or establishing or augmenting research partnerships with external industrial partners. The Innovation award is made possible by funds from the College of Science Venture Fund.
