In addition to Ignite funding for applied research, UW System Administration, in collaboration with WiSys offers funding for prototype development. Ignite funding for prototype development is offered as short term awards (e.g. 6-12 months) to support research and development intended to advance the commercial potential of technologies.
Ignite funding for prototype development is not available for UW-Madison or UW-Milwaukee researchers.
WiSys has partnered with Submittable, an online grants management platform, for the submission of Ignite - prototype development applications.
Applicants are asked to submit their application materials at the following link: https://wisys.submittable.com/submit. All forms are available for download here as well as within the Submittable platform.
