Investing in innovation
As the facilitator of technology transfer at Clemson University, our goal is to help Clemson faculty, staff, and students move their innovative technologies out of the classroom and into the market. With the year swiftly coming to a close, and a new year upon us, I want to remind you of all the resources we have available to assist you in accelerating the commercialization of your technology.
In an effort to advance your research, we offer two unique funding opportunities designed to support the development and implementation of new technologies.
Our Technology Maturation Fund, unlike any other source of funding available to Clemson faculty, offers researchers additional support as they embark on the crucial last stage needed to move their technologies from innovation to commercialization. Since its inception in 2014, more than $870,000 in maturation funds have been awarded to Clemson researchers.
In addition to the Technology Maturation Fund, we have recently instituted a new funding program that provides healthcare-focused grants to researchers. The new Innovation Maturation Fund program is intended to foster growth and market implementation of novel health science innovations.
As always, we are here to support your innovations by protecting, maturing, and marketing your technologies, and are committed to investing in you and your research. I hope you will find these resources useful as you continue to advance your research portfolio.
If you need assistance with any aspect of your research journey, please fill out this form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Have a safe and happy holiday season!
