UIC Innovation Fund to support commericialization of UIC-based technologies

The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Innovation (OVCI) is proud to announce the creation of the UIC Innovation Fund to support the commercialization of technologies developed by faculty, staff and students at UIC. The new UIC Innovation Fund will combine oversight of the Chancellor’s Translational Research Initiative (CTRI) and the Proof of Concept (POC) Awards Program to streamline efforts while preserving a robust innovation pipeline. UIC initially created these programs to help university-based technologies reach important milestones critical to commercialization. The new fund will be managed and executed in partnership with the Office of Technology Management (OTM).
