Deadline looms for optical sensing funding program

May 26, 2011
Ocean Optics’ Blue Grants and Challenges program—which provides funding for new technologies in optical sensing—seeks innovative and novel optical sensing technologies that solve problems and improve quality of life.

Ocean Optics’ (Dunedin, FL) Blue Grants and Challenges program—which provides funding for new technologies in optical sensing—seeks innovative and novel optical sensing technologies that solve problems and improve quality of life. Applicants from all disciplines are encouraged to apply prior to the June 30, 2011 deadline.

The program is intended to fund projects in life sciences, chemistry, quality assurance, environment, research and industry. The grants are divided into two phases: Phase I grants are issued to fund further evaluation and development of technologies, and up to 10 grants of up $10,000 will be awarded; and Phase II grants are issued to mature a proposed technology through proof of concept in a way that enables the potential of market commercialization, and up to two of these awards will be granted for up to $100,000 each.

Grant recipients will be chosen based on ability of the solution to change the world for the better, scientific prowess, creativity, technical merit, and commercial viability. The international program welcomes applications from around the world.
