SUNY Technology Accelerator Fund (TAF) Accepting Applications

The SUNY Technology Accelerator Fund (TAF) provides critical investments to advance SUNY innovation from the lab to the marketplace. TAF investments are highly competitive and support technology development milestones, such as feasibility studies, prototyping, and clinical and field testing, to demonstrate that an innovation has commercial potential.
   


Eligibility: Faculty, staff, and students from all disciplines are encouraged to submit proposals for TAF Class of 2022 funding. Please be advised that all proposals require the review and participation of the UB Limited Submission program prior to submission. Review the guidelines here.

Projects from all disciplines are welcome to apply for TAF Class of 2022 funding. • Previously funded TAF projects are eligible for TAF Class of 2022 funding so long as the eligibility criteria are met. • Projects must be led by an individual who has technology commercialization and project management experience and has proven to be effective at tracking deliverables. • Only proposals which can demonstrate that commercialization milestones are achievable within six months will receive an investment. However, the TAF Managing Director may make an exception to this requirement if the applicant demonstrates that interim milestones can be reached within six months. 

 

Funding Available: Awards may be made up to $50,000, but projects will be funded at the level deemed necessary to achieve the proposed project objectives. Class of 2022 funds cannot be used for tuition, construction, renovation, legal fees, patent costs, or permits. Funds may be used for salary and fringe benefits for project personnel if a definitive need is outlined in the proposal submitted. All funds must be used solely for the project described in the application. 

 

Maximum Number of Applications: UB can submit up to 2 proposals.

 

Sponsor Deadlines: 4/15/2022

 

Limited Submission Due:  2/16/2022

 

To Apply Submit the Following:
