The Commercialization and Innovation Fund (CIF) will be used for development, protection and advancement of ideas and discoveries assigned to FIU. Funds will be available to FIU faculty, staff and students who have disclosed to the Office of Technology Management and Commercialization, and who submit proposals for available funds. All proposals will be reviewed (only after an invention disclosure) by the Innovation and Technology Transfer Group (ITTG), comprised of selected FIU Research Foundation Board members, members of the FIU community, and others with required expertise. The ITTG will make award selections and will notify the Director of Technology Management and Commercialization. A follow up review will be conducted to evaluate utilization of funds and commercial impact.
