02/28/2006 - Proposals Now Being Accepted for WTC Research Grants

Washington businesses working on cutting-edge, new technologies can apply for a grant from the Washington Technology Center (WTC) to move their research and development forward. WTC awards hundreds of thousands of dollars to Washington-based research teams in an effort to help transition great ideas out of the laboratory and into the marketplace.

WTC allocates more than $1.3 million annually toward these grants, which are awarded on a competitive basis to collaborative research teams working on innovative technology projects with strong commercial potential. This funding can pay up to 80 percent of the cost of research projects-allowing companies to channel their capital to other business growth needs. Project teams are eligible to receive up to $100,000 for initial proof-of-concept projects and up to $300,000 total for multi-phase projects.

WTC's Research and Technology Development (RTD) awards help Washington companies grow faster, create jobs and attract investors by providing that critical funding needed to advance scientific research and product development. Since 1995, the Washington Technology Center has provided assistance in connecting companies with research experts and awarded more than 285 grants through the RTD program.

These winners span a wide-range of technologies and are applicable to both start-up ventures and established companies looking to trial and market a new technology or product. Past winners include Real Networks, EKOS, Microvision, Siemens Medical Systems, RS Medical and Tree Top. These companies have partnered with some of the world’s leading researchers from the University of Washington, Washington State University, Gonzaga University, and Western, Central and Eastern Washington Universities.

How to Apply
WTC is now accepting proposals for its next round of grants which will be awarded in June, 2006. To be considered for the next round of grants, interested parties should complete a Notice of Intent form by March 23, 2006. Applications are due on April 27, 2006. Additional information and applications materials are available online at WTC’s website:
