University of Florida Industry Partnerships (UFLIPS)

The UFLIPS Matching Grant Program will promote early- to late-stage technology development and commercialization through collaborative research opportunities between University of Florida researchers and high technology energy companies in Florida.

The path from the lab to the market can be risky and financially burdensome for many companies. The UFLIPS program has been created to aid Florida companies in their commercialization efforts of energy technologies.

The program allows these companies to engage UF Researchers and their teams in translational research opportunities, train and engage new talent while leveraging Research and Development dollars.

Please view the UFLIPS application form.
