Pre-Proposals for CIF Due Nov. 4

The Office of Technology Transfer is now accepting pre-proposal submissions for the Fiscal Year 2015 funding cycle of the Chancellor’s Innovation Fund.

The fund awards up to $75,000 to support short-term (one year or less) commercially focused research projects. Proposed CIF projects ideally incorporate study endpoints designed to directly address license-enabling milestones required by potential licensees. Anticipated outcomes include new licensing opportunities or the launch of a new university start-up company.

The submission deadline for preproposals is Monday, Nov. 4. For additional details related to eligibility, proposal process, criteria, and submission, visit
