New Hampshire Companies Can Request State-funded Grants for Research

Jan 19, 2012

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.

The current RFP solicits proposals for both the FY12 and FY13 budget years in the cumulative amount of $400,000. Companies are required to provide matching dollars or services and will be required to receive additional NHIRC-sponsored training in SBIR/STTR grant writing in an effort to improve leverage of NHIRC funds.

Selection for a grant is a competitive process, with oversight by representatives from industry, government and academic institutions.

A nonbinding Letter of Intent on company letterhead is due January 27, 2012Final proposals are due March 23, 2012.
