U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration has awarded the Technology Development Institute at Kansas State University grant funding though the coronavirus relief act. The money will assist regional innovation efforts.
Funds will be used to create an Inovation Stimulus Program, which provides no cost commercialization and engineering services to projects that will have a positive economic impact in the region, said Jeff Tucker, institute executive director.
The program will offer up to $150,000 worth of services to help move projects, products or ideas forward in the marketplace over the next 12 months with a maximum award of $20,000 for any single project.
Applications for the program opened on Aug. 1 and will remain open until all funding has been allocated. More details on the program and a link to the online application can be found on the Technology Development Institute website under the Innovation Stimulus Program page.
