Science Center QED Funding Program

In April 2009, Science Center launched the QED proof-of-concept funding program.  The grants provide pre-seed funding for commercially promising technologies developed at regional universities.  In the first round of funding, QED’s review panel assessed 73 proposals and selected 10 semi-finalists.  Each semi-finalist worked with a business management team appointed by QED to create a business plan for the technology.  Three projects were selected to receive $100,000 grants from Science Center with equivalent additional university matching.  A call for proposals for a third round of funding has been announced in June 2010.
