Program Details

The KU Proof of Concept funds development projects that demonstrates a technology’s market viability to potential investors and partners. KU-POC projects consist of a defined set of milestones that, when completed, help overcome a specific hurdle to an innovation's transfer to the market. Eligible projects include those in which the university has applied for IP protection in the form of a provisional patent application within the past five years. The KU-POC projects are competitively awarded.
