SyracuseCoE accepting applications from Partner Program firms for its Innovation Fund

The SyracuseCoE is pleased to announce the availability of Round 2 of the 2022 SyracuseCoE Innovation Fund, supported by Partners – for Partners, and designed to help companies overcome barriers to commercialization of potentially transformative innovations in the field of environmental and energy systems. 

Applications of up to $10,000 are invited from current 2022-2023 SyracuseCoE Partner Program firms. Companies at all Partner levels – Industry, Affiliate and Start-Up – are invited to apply. Projects must address a challenge within SyracuseCoE’s core focus areas, and we strongly encourage projects that include research engagements involving faculty and students from affiliated research institutions, such as support for product development and testing, modeling and performance prediction or optimization, market analyses, as well as proposal match requirements (cash or in-kind contributions). 

Applications from CoE Partner Program firms are due by Thursday, October 20, 2022, at 5:00 p.m. ET. Applications will be evaluated by a panel of reviewers, and selected applicants will be invited to give a brief pitch for their projects in late October or early November.
