The Office of Commercialization has chosen eight research projects with high commercialization potential to receive awards of up to $50,000 through the Commercialization Gap Fund for 2019. The funding was awarded to faculty from diverse fields including agriculture, engineering, human health and veterinary medicine.
The Washington State University Commercialization Gap Fund (CGF) was re-established in 2014 with a generous donation from the Washington Research Foundation to support projects over a two-year period. This gift was matched by internal funding supported by the WSU Offices of the President, Provost, and the Vice President for Research. The goal of the program is to support projects that have … » More …
