Notice body

The Office of Vice President for Research and Economic Development has announced the creation of the LAUNCH Fund: an internal, competitive grant program designed to support proof-of-commercial concept research. The fund's specific goal is to advance the commercial potential of Auburn technologies and bring them closer to licensing, either to an existing company or to a proposed start-up company. The prize pool for the first competition is up to $100,000, which can be split and granted to one or more awardees. The application window opens Friday, Jan. 8, and closes Monday, Feb. 8. Awards are scheduled to be announced in April. For more information, visit the LAUNCH Fund website.
