JHU Technology Development Accelerator Fund SEED GRANT PROGRAM

The purpose of the Technology Development Accelerator Fund (TDAF) is to further the development of Bloomberg School of Public Health faculty innovations with commercial potential.  Grants will be awarded on a competitive basis to projects that require additional development, proof-of-concept or prototype design to spur interest or make the technology ready for licensing.  The technologies could include patentable inventions or copyrightable material, such as software or assessment tools.  Suitable projects are tyically those that are beyond the basic research stage and beyond the interest of most federal funding agencie.  Proposal must demonstrate a high probability of making it from the lab to the marketplace.  The TDAF is not generally intended to support "de novo" development of ideas on which no substantial work has yet been undertaken, nor is it meant to support copyrightable academic monographs or educational material. 

Grants of up to $50,000 (no indirect costs will apply) will be awarded to researchers for projects up to 12 months in duration. 

Proposal submission deadline:  February 22, 2013; submit all proposals to Mary Marcenelle (
