JHU Technology Development Accelerator Fund Seed Grant

Purpose: 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 typically those that are beyond the basic research stage and beyond the interest of most federal funding agencies. Proposals 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.

Eligibility: Any full-time faculty member with a primary appointment in the School is welcome to participate. 

Funding: Grants of up to $50,000 (no indirect costs will apply) will be awarded for up to 12 months

Website:   no website available 

Proposal deadline:   February 22, 2013; proposals should be submitted to Mary Marcenelle  at
