Three times per year, the OSU Advantage Accelerator seeks technology-based projects in any discipline that will move OSU-owned technologies closer to commercialization. Projects should require $15,000 or less of Accelerator Innovation and Development (AID) funding to achieve an important milestone(s) connected to commercialization.
Applicant teams who are selected for an AID award will receive up to $15,000 of funding for R&D activities as outlined in the project budget and scope of work.
