Partnerships for Innovation: Accelerating Innovation Research- Technology Translation: The NSF Partnerships for Innovation (PFI) program within the Division of Industrial Innovation and Partnerships (IIP) is an umbrella for two complementary subprograms, Accelerating Innovation Research (AIR) and Building Innovation Capacity (BIC). Overall, the PFI program offers opportunities to connect new knowledge to societal benefit through translational research efforts and/or partnerships that encourage, enhance and accelerate innovation and entrepreneurship. The subject of this solicitation is PFI: AIR-Technology Translation (PFI: AIR-TT). The PFI: AIR-TT solicitation serves as an early opportunity to move previously NSF-funded research results with promising commercial potential along the path toward commercialization. Projects are supported to demonstrate proof-of-concept, prototype, or scale-up while engaging faculty and students in entrepreneurial/innovative thinking.

WEBINAR: A webinar will be held the end of July or early August, 2016 to answer any questions about this solicitation. Details will be posted on the IIP website (<a href=""><span style="text-decoration: underline;"></span></a>) as they become available.

Additional Information on Eligibility
*Who May Submit Proposals: Proposals may only be submitted by the following:
Academic / Research Institutions; includes universities and two- and four-year colleges (including community colleges) accredited in, and having a campus located in, the US acting on behalf of their faculty members. Includesnon-profit academic / research institutions.

*Who May Serve as PI:

Lineage Requirement: There are two paths to meet the lineage requirement: throughNSF-supported research results, or NSF-supported (National I-Corps<sup>TM</sup>) customer discovery results

1. Principal Investigator (PI) or a co-PI must have had an NSF award that ended no more than 6-years prior to the chosen submission window&rsquo;s full proposal deadline date or be a current NSF award recipient. The proposed proof-of-concept or prototype/ scale-up must be derived from the research results and/or discoveries from this underlying NSF award -OR-

2. The Principal Investigator (PI) or a co-PI must have graduated as part of an NSF cohort from an NSF-funded National I- Corps<sup>TM</sup>program within the past 3 years. The proposed proof-of-concept or prototype/ scale-up must be based on technology for which customer discovery activities were performed under the I- Corps<sup>TM</sup>national training. In other words, it isnotsufficient to just have had I- Corps<sup>TM</sup>training; rather the customer discovery activities performed under the NSF-funded I- Corps<sup>TM</sup>grant need to be based on the technology that is proposed to be translated within the AIR-TT proposal.

Note: a proposal describing sole lineage to any of the following programs is not allowed and may be returned without review: Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU), Research Experiences for Teachers (RET), the Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP), PFI: AIR-TT, PFI: AIR-RA, Regional I-Corps<sup>TM</sup>, and SBIR/STTR.

The PI must be a faculty member at a U.S. academic / research institution at the time of the award.

In addition to the PI, there must be at least one other participant on the project (e.g., someone listed as a co-PI, Senior Personnel, Other Professional, subawardee, consultant, collaborator, etc.) with explicit business experience (for example, someone from the technology transfer office, the business school, a local/regional development office, a business entity, etc.). This person must have an active role that is explicitly described along with the specification of a time commitment on the project.
