The Coleman Institute for Cognitive Disabilities is now accepting proposals from CU faculty members for the Technology Translational Research and Development (TTRD) Awards. Projects must be authored by full or part-time faculty members with the rank of assistant, associate or full professor.
The Coleman Institute works to catalyze and integrate advances in technology that promote the quality of life of people with cognitive disabilities and their caregivers. The TTRD Award advances the Institute’s support of translational science resulting in products or services reaching the hands of consumers. The award will fund researchers and developers from the four CU campuses to develop and disseminate technology products that directly aid persons living with cognitive disabilities.
A total of four proposals will be funded. Two $50,000 grants will be awarded for Phase I (early stage development) and two $100,000 grants will be awarded for Phase II (late-stage development) projects.
The intended outcome of both phases is to progress the development of tangible tools, resources, hardware or software, and/or other technology strategies for improving quality of life for persons living with cognitive disabilities across their lifespan. Proposals that are driven by user-inspired research and have a clear path of translation to the marketplace will be funded. Recipients will have 12 months to use the funding.
The proposal submission template and full guidelines and requirements are available online at https://www.cu.edu/coleman/funding-opportunities/coleman-institute-funding.
Deadline for proposal submissions is 5 p.m. Dec. 15, 2022.
