Launched in 2007, the GAP Funding Program helps close the distance between a brilliant idea and a commercially viable outcome. It’s goal is to ‘de-risk’ an invention so it might be more attractive for further commercialization funding or private investment or licensing to an existing company, or generate new intellectual property around which a new venture can be formed.
Pre-proposals will be accepted between June 1 - July 31, 2015. Full proposals (by invitation only) will be accepted July 1 - August 31, 2015.
