Working in close collaboration with the Commonwealth’s Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development, the Innovation Institute at MassTech administers the Collaborative Research and Development Matching Grant Program to support large-scale, long-term projects that have the potential to spur innovation, promote cluster development, and grow jobs by investing in critical research & development (R&D) infrastructure. These investments support R&D partnerships that bring together the Commonwealth’s world-class research institutions and class-leading companies.
By allocating matching funds to support capital expenditures, the Innovation Institute works with an Investment Advisory Committee composed of executives from academia, industry, and the venture capital communities to identify opportunities to strengthen and expand the state’s innovation economy, with a specific focus on technology clusters where Massachusetts can achieve global leadership.
