The University of Delaware has won a $300,000 award from the National Science Foundation’s Innovation Corps Sites Program (I-Corps Sites), according to a university press release.

The three-year project, “I-Corps Sites as an Ecosystem Catalyst,” will be led by Dan Freeman, director of UD’s Horn Program in Entrepreneurship, and Dan Flynn, associate dean for research in the College of Health Sciences.

The purpose of an I-Corps Site is to nurture and support multiple local teams to transition their ideas, devices, processes or other intellectual activities into the marketplace. The funding is provided only to academic institutions that already have innovation or entrepreneurial units.
