Lab Bench to Commercialization (LB2C) Grant Program
Eberly College of Science Lab Bench to Commercialization (LB2C) Grant Program
The Eberly College of Science is committed to fostering technology development and bringing academic research to the marketplace. The Lab Bench to Commercialization (LB2C) Grant Program is a source of competitive funds for researchers with official appointments in the College of Science. Program highlights:
- One year of funding ($15,000-25,000) to support translational research aimed at advancing the commercial potential of an ongoing research project.
- Request for proposals are typically solicitated annually in April/May, with funding cycles beginning July/August.
Researchers who apply for funds should be prepared to take the next steps in translating their intellectual property (IP), including developing strategies for continued development and market commercialization (may include third party licensing or startups). Successful applications must demonstrate that funding will significantly impact development activities for existing IP and/or research that may be commercialized. Subject inventions may include a tangible product, therapeutic, process/method, software program, or significant improvement of a current market product.
