Washington Technology Center Proposals for R&D Funding Due October 23
Washington businesses working on cutting-edge new technologies can apply for a grant from the Washington Technology Center to move their R&D forward and help transition great ideas out of the laboratory and into the marketplace. This fiscal year, the Washington Technology Center awarded Research and Technology Development funding totaling $512,269 to seven projects developed between companies and Washington researchers. Only one of those awards went to an Eastern Washington company.

The Washington Technology Center allocates around $1 million annually to the Research & Technology Development (RTD) grants program, which awards funding on a competitive basis to collaborative research teams working on innovative technology projects with near-term commercial viability. 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.

RTD grants are applicable to a wide-range of technologies and both start-up ventures and established companies looking to trial and market a new technology are eligible for the awards. However, preference is given to smaller companies, those with 250 or fewer employees.

Free information sessions are offered throughout the year. In Spokane, the next information session will be, Tuesday, August 12, 2008 , 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m., Sirti Boardroom, 665 N. Riverpoint Blvd, Room 432. To reserve a space for this session, please contact RTD Project Manager, Russell Paez, 206-616-3102, email rpaez@watechcenter.org.

How to Apply: To be considered for the next round of grants, interested parties should complete a Notice of Intent form by September 18, 2008. Applications are due on October 23, 2008. Winners are notified in December and projects begin January 1, 2009. More information and applications materials are available on-line at http://www.watechcenter.org/re/rtd.
