New seed funding and incentives to propel your research at UB

UB SWIFT - Sponsorship with Industry Focused Terms

UB values the mutual benefits of academic-industry collaborations and understands that efficient transactions and financial certainty are important to business. The SWIFT approach empowers both entities to set research and licensing terms at the project planning stage, reducing transaction time and eliminating lengthy, costly negotiations from the partnering process.

  • Expedite transaction; increase research dollars
  • Preferred Terms Fee:
    • Paid in advance to lock in preferred exclusive license terms
    • 50% allocated to PI’s (or Co-PIs) non-sponsored research account
    • PI, Company and UB must agree to SWIFT

UB Small Business Innovation Award

UB is adding partnering incentives to expand the research for PIs with Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase 1 grants and/or Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs.
