MTTC MA Acorn Innovation Awards

The MA Acorn Innovation Fund is intended to support the demonstration of the viability of a technology developed at Massachusetts research universities. Awards could be used to further develop a prototype or to gather additional data to demonstrate proof of concept or to obtain data that shows how the technology compares to existing technologies and what the competitive advantages are. The Acorn Awards are designed to fund small, rapidly accomplished projects. The aim of these small projects is to demonstrate the technology features such that additional proof of concept or commercialization funding can be obtained. To be eligible for an award, applicants must be a Principal Investigator at a Massachusetts research university with technology disclosed to your institution. Up to 13 awards ($15K each) will be granted.

Deadline: Applications are due on October 4, 2019.
