“Green” Product Innovation Grants Available

This information was passed on to the University of Scranton SBDC by Steve Stumbris of the Bucknell University SBDC.

The Green Business Alliance intends to award funding for one or more projects that seek to introduce green building products to the marketplace.   Commercial firms and universities located in Pennsylvania are eligible to propose projects. Collaborative efforts are strongly encouraged. Projects must be clear regarding the commercial opportunity of the project.

Eligible projects should address key product development challenges, focus on engineering or design challenges, show a significant degree of innovation, and identify a clear path to commercialization with the potential to significantly impact innovation-based companies in the region.

Proposals are solicited from:

  • Established Pennsylvania companies looking to develop innovative green building products and the processes to produce them;
