ADVANCE Grant Program
The MSU Innovation Center is proud to manage and administer the ADVANCE Grant Program sponsored by Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) on behalf of all public universities throughout the State of Michigan. The ADVANCE Grant program, like MTRAC, provides a strong incentive for faculty with early stage technologies at Michigan public universities to engage with their university’s technology transfer office and commercialization activities. Researchers interested in participating may contact their tech manager to learn more.
This US Small Business Administration (SBA) Office of Technology administers the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program and the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Program. These programs are awarded to small businesses and therefore faculty researchers must collaborate with a small company in order to participate.
