New legislators were sworn in recently in Concord, NH and the NHIRC is ramping up to inform them about the program and its impact on the state’s jobs and economic development. NHIRC Day will be held on February 5th at noon in St. Paul’s Church where legislators are being invited to meet representatives from some of New Hampshire’s most innovative companies to learn how translational research funding helps companies innovate, stay and grow in New Hampshire, and how the NHIRC is a proven job creator for NH with 20:1 leverage on dollars spent.
The New Hampshire Innovation Research Center (NHIRC) is now soliciting Letters of Intent from New Hampshire companies for conducting research at New Hampshire-based colleges and universities (including Dartmouth and the University of New Hampshire). The grants support projects under development in the private sector. Projects can vary from proof-of-concept to a substantial product or process design.
