N.H. Innovation Research Center seeks grant applications

Project proposals sought from Granite State tech firms

The New Hampshire Innovation Research Center is accepting letters of intent from Granite State companies looking to conduct research with New Hampshire-based colleges and universities, including the University of New Hampshire and Dartmouth College.

A signed, nonbinding letter of intent (LOI) on company letterhead is due by Monday, March 9, the center said.

The letters must include a short project description that clearly defines the research concept, identifies the company’s field of technology, and anticipates the commercial outcome of the project.

Projects vary from proof-of-concept to a substantial product or process design. Applications are encouraged from companies in biomedical/biotechnology, engineering, IT, life sciences, materials science and manufacturing.

Companies that win grants are required to provide matching dollars or services, and are offered additional training in grant writing to apply for federally funded Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer grants.

Interested businesses do not need an academic partner to submit a letter. Assistance in locating a partner can be provided.
