COMM: The Kentucky Commercialization Fund

About COMM: The Kentucky Commercialization Fund

The Kentucky Commercialization Fund (COMM) supports efforts made by faculty in Kentucky to commercialize a technology, product, or process that they have developed but not yet licensed. Beginning Fall 2016, the intent of COMM will be fulfilled under KSEF's Research and Development Excellence Awards (i.e., there will not be separate commercialization solicitations). This program is managed by the Kentucky Science and Engineering Foundation (KSEF) at the Kentucky Science and Technology Corporation (KSTC).

Kentucky Commercialization Fund awards are not eligible for no-cost extensions.
