The Iowa Centers for Enterprise (ICE), in conjunction with the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR), is pleased to announce seed funding that is designed to expand the commercialization of UI technology.

The funds are to support the development of innovations with commercial potential, with the result that more UI technology reaches the marketplace. The funding is intended to support a range of stages in technology development, from initial concept (prior to intellectual property disclosure), through proof of concept, to licensing and commercialization. Awards range from $10-75K.
