Proof-of-concept grant

The Proof of Concept (PoC) Grant program provides support for the demonstration of technological feasibility and economic viability of ideas and inventions emanating from the NCCR Bio-Inspired Materials.  The PoC Grant provides funds for short-term (approximately 1-3 months) projects with an application nature, for example prototyping, developing advanced proof-of-concept, benchmarking of inventions with existing technologies, demonstrating specific applications, assessment of pre-industrial feasibility and/or identification of market opportunities. Guidelines and Application Form for the PoC grant can be downloaded here (guidelines) and here (application).
