USTAR Technology Acceleration Program grant applications open
The Utah Science Technology and Research (USTAR) initiative opened the second round of the Technology Acceleration Program (TAP) for applications on Monday. Letters of intent, which are not required, are due March 13, and submissions close March 29.
TAP is a competitive research grant program, designed for start-ups and early stage companies. Mature companies can apply to TAP for development of a new technology or product.
“The TAP grants address the risk capital gap that exists for Utah based start-up companies,” said Ivy Estabrooke, USTAR executive director. “TAP address that gap through a competitive grant process for early stage start-ups”
For Fiscal Year 2017 USTAR is focused on five technology sectors: automation and robotics, aerospace, advanced materials, big data, energy and clean technology and life sciences. Applications must be submitted at www.taputah.com.
