Grant Amount: $30,000
Year: 2013

 This grant will support students and faculty in refining and institutionalizing an existing course—New Product Commercialization, started with a 2012 NCIIA Planning Grant—that brings together students from engineering, business and design to work on creating new ventures. Teams create new products, develop prototypes, and write business plans. Specifically, this grant will support student teams working in the areas of human health and the environment, giving them access to materials for prototypes, marketing support, software to assist in intellectual property searches, and workshop safety training expenses.
