Deshpande Center issues call for proposals; deadline is Oct. 12

MIT's Deshpande Center for Technological Innovation has issued a call for proposals for its spring 2006 round of grants. The grant program is open to all MIT faculty and awards two types of funding to support leading-edge research in emerging technologies -- ignition grants for early-stage, proof-of-concept explorations with broad potential impact, and innovation grants for later-stage innovations that faculty inventors are eager to see commercialized.

In its first six rounds, the Deshpande Center has funded 44 projects for a total of $4.9 million.

Preproposals are due Oct. 12 at 5 p.m. For more information, visit or call x3-0943.
