Launch Innovation Grant Program

LAUNCH proposals must be defined as applied and not basic (pure) research. Proposals will adhere to a submission process which identifies the technology readiness level for the project along with pertinent information regarding market assessment, commercial viability, milestone schedule and budget required. Grant proposals will be screened for compliance with defined selection criteria identified by the OVPR. From the screened applications, selected candidates will present to the LAUNCH judging panel in final phase of the process. The judging panel will select projects to be funded, and will monitor progress to ensure that objectives and milestone schedules are met.

Feedback designed to strengthen your application is available through the Office of Innovation Advancement & Commercialization.  For more information on LAUNCH, including the full program schedule, visit IAC's LAUNCH website.
