New grants to innovation corps 'nodes' further enhance public-private partnership
Date:2/22/2013

Today the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced the latest round of grant awards made under the NSF's Innovation Corps (I-Corps) effort. I-Corps is a public-private partnership to help develop scientific and engineering discoveries into useful technologies.

The three awards, totaling $11,239,921, went to three consortia of universities, which will act as I-Corps "nodes" to support regional needs for innovation education, infrastructure and research. The three consortia are:

The I-Corps Node: NSF Bay Area Regional I-Node Program, led by Richard Lyons at the University of California, Berkeley's Haas School of Business, and Silicon Valley entrepreneur Steve Blank, who teaches at Berkeley and Stanford, in collaboration with University of California, San Francisco and Stanford University.

This $3,750,000 award is supporting the consortium's efforts to produce an extensive entrepreneurship platform that is built on the scientific, technology, and engineering strengths, business thought leadership, and external ecosystems of the three universities. The node is applying and disseminating the Lean LaunchPad methodology through classes, focused training, and mentoring services to help drive the creation of science and technology-based startups. The partners are investigating how I-Corps Node training influences research commercialization outcomes and exploring ways to better understand the early stages of team formation and evolution, formation and evolution of advising networks, timing and content of decisions, and real-time attention allocation. The node is also studying the formation of entrepreneurial teams and ways to measure team evolution and effectiveness, in order to better understand how they can be supported in their efforts to commercialize invention.

The I-Corps Node: DC, Maryland, Virginia Region, led by Dean Chang at the University of Maryland, in collaboration with George Washington University and Virg
