Maximizing Technology Commercialization of Federal Research Investments through the Best Practices at Innovation and Economic Prosperity Universities: The federal government invests over $140 billion annually in research and development, including over $50 billion annually in extramural research conducted by universities, companies, and non-profit organizations. The Department of Commerce, as delegated to NIST, has responsibility for promoting commercialization of technologies resulting from federally sponsored research across all government agencies under the Bayh-Dole Act of 1980, as amended. NIST therefore invites proposals from eligible applicants for a one-year study to evaluate universities that have been designated as Innovation and Economic Prosperity Universities (IEPUs), by the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities (APLU) for their approaches to innovation and technology commercialization and to review and evaluate existing technology-based collaborations between IEPUs and technology development entities, including Federal research laboratories (FRLs). See the Full Announcement/NOFO document for further details.
