Technology Transfer Incentive Program (TTIP)
The Technology Transfer Incentive Program (TTIP) is intended to accelerate the commercialization of technology developed or enhanced at an institution of higher education by providing short-term state assistance to the Applicant Institution working in collaboration with a New York company partner to commercialize intellectual property or research. Commercialization brings technology to market.
The TTIP Program is specifically designed to help business make the rapid transfer of new ideas and new technology from the research lab to the marketplace.
This program helps New York companies commercialize high-tech innovations in partnership with colleges and universities by providing awards to institutions of higher education to move leading-edge technologies from the research lab to the marketplace.
The Technology Transfer Incentive Program supports a wide array of activities associated with bringing new technologies to the marketplace including improvement of product prototypes and existing commercial products, new product development, development of manufacturing processes to commercialize prototypes, and filing patent applications.
Any institution of higher education, including community colleges, in New York State is eligible to submit up to two Proposals. An institution of higher education is an educational institution in New York State that offers post-secondary education and awards associates, bachelors, masters, and/or doctoral degrees and may also offer post-doctoral education.
No program funding opportunity is available at this time. Please continue to monitor this site for announcements of new funding.
