Research Grants Program Office
CHRP offers a number of programs and initiatives. See the site for details about specific funding opportunities and how to apply.
Proof of Concept Program: Commercialization Gap Grants (POC) is an effort to bridge the gap from research to commercialization in what is sometimes called “the valley of death”: that is, the absence of an industry sponsor and the lack of funding to build a prototype of a product or service that could then be used to solicit investment for a new company or license a new product.
These grants promote collaborations between UC researchers and the national laboratories at UC.
