How Would Your Company Spend a Million Dollars - - or More - - to Stimulate Innovation, Economic Impact and Job Creation?

Thursday, August 24, 2017 5:21 PM | Anonymous

Following voter approval of the research and development (R&D) bond referendum in June 2017, the Maine Technology Institute (MTI) is responsible for soliciting proposals from Maine organizations looking to make investments in R&D equipment, infrastructure and technology upgrades to drive innovation in Maine.  The goal is for organizations to demonstrate how the R&D funding will complement their own matching investments to the greatest possible extent and for the greatest possible economic impact.  Applicants will participate in a competitive process and will need to show how the grant funding will help them gain and hold market share, increase revenues, and grow or preserve jobs for Maine people.

MTI would like to hear what potential applicants think about the proposed approach to the award decision-making process.  MTI staff will be holding a handful of informal feedback sessions with those who may be interested in this bond funding opportunity.  As with all State bond funds, awards must be used for capital and infrastructure expenditures, such as equipment and facilities renovation.

The conversations with take place on August 28 and 29 in several settings across the State. Reservations are not required.  If you would like a copy of the draft program design prior to the conversations, please contact Patti Sutter, at psutter@mainetechnology.org
