Syracuse Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems seeks applications for competitively awarded Technology Application and Demonstration (TAD) projects. Projects of interest address applications to demonstrate the "first proof of principle" or "reduction to practice" phase of new product or service development associated with air and water quality in built and urban environments.
Up to $200,000 is available for awards under this announcement. SyracuseCoE anticipates making up to four awards depending upon the merit and number of applications submitted. Proposed start dates should be May 16, 2011.

SyracuseCoE Technology Application and Demonstration awards grow the Central Upstate New York economy by funding the thorough, collaborative testing of environmental quality product and service innovations as a step toward commercialization. Commercialization of innovations is funded by the Commercialization Assistance Program.
New York Creative Core companies that have benefited from TAD grants include Bluepoint Environmental, CollabWorx, Propulsive Wing, Taitem Engineering, Widetronix, Air Innovations, HAPControl, Isolation Systems, OrthoSystems, and Phytofilter Technologies.
