Researchers, entrepreneurs can apply now for 2005 grants

The Washington Technology Center is now accepting applications for its spring round of research funding awards. WTC’s Research and Technology Development (RTD) awards are designed to help integrate new technologies into Washington business operations.
Companies that team with researchers from academic institutions or research centers can receive up to $240,000 in financial support for collaborative research projects. WTC invests more than $1 million annually on behalf of the state towards technology projects with strong commercial potential through this grants program.
Winning an RTD grant could help companies fund critical research to accelerate to-market delivery of an innovative technology or next-generation product release. It can lend credibility and prestige to a company’s research and position or project to better attract the attention of federal contractors, investors and corporate partners.
