Calling All GW Innovators & Researchers!

Tuesday, April 1, 2-3 pm

Marvin Center 302

Do you have research or an invention that you think can make a difference in the world, or do you want to be part of a team that brings it to market?

If so, attend our information session on the National Science Foundation (NSF) and DC I-Corps programs during the GW Research Days 2014 to learn more from previous participants, Prof. Nan Zhang and Graduate Student Ben Holmes, as well as Jim Chung, co-Principal Investigator for the DC I-Corps Node and Executive Director of the GW Office of Entrepreneurship.

GW, along with University of Maryland and Virginia Tech, has been awarded $3.75M by the NSF to train, coach, and accelerate university researchers (professors, post-docs, and graduate students) and MBA students (course credit may be available) in commercializing high technology and life sciences research and inventions. Both programs are completely free, with grants of $2,000-50,000 available for eligible participants. The NSF I-Corps program is run several times per year at various I-Corps Nodes around the country. Applications are submitted through the NSF. The DC I-Corps program is run two times per year, and applications are being accepted on a rolling basis at http://www.dcicorps.org.

Learn more at our information session. Please RSVP to innovate@gwu.edu.
