Syracuse CoE Office for Industry Collaboration seeks applications for Technology Application and Demonstration (TAD) awards
Syracuse CoE Office for Industry Collaboration seeks applications for Technology Application and Demonstration (TAD) awardsJune 07, 2007Kelly Homan Rodoskikahoman@syr.edu
The Syracuse Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems Office for Industry Collaboration (OIC) is accepting applications for the competitively awarded Technology Application and Demonstration (TAD) awards. It is anticipated that up to five awards, at a maximum of $150,000 each, will be awarded.
TAD projects are those designed to accelerate the introduction of new environmental quality products and services into the marketplace. Projects that will be considered for the award will demonstrate the “first proof of principle” or “reduction to practice” phase of a new product or service associated with air and water quality in built and urban environments. Projects should promote technology application and demonstration rather than technology development.
All corporate, business and commercial partners of the Syracuse CoE OIC, as well as any for-profit enterprise with a permanent place of business located in New York state employing a full-time workforce, are eligible to apply. Applications are due to the Syracuse COE OIC by July 27. The awards will be announced on Sept. 24, and projects are anticipated to start on Jan. 1, 2008.
Further details on the TAD program can be found on the Web at http://www.syracusecoe.org/OIC/oictad.aspx For more information, contact Sandy Downey, executive vice president of the Syracuse CoE OIC, at (315) 443-8211 or firstname.lastname@example.org
