  1. Resource Description
    The primary obstacle to developing university technology and partnering with industry is the gap (sometimes referred to colloquially as “death valley”) that exists between early-stage research results and key proof-of-principle data required for industry to make a commitment and invest in the technology for further development and commercialization. The Technology Development Accelerator Fund, managed by the Office of Technology Development (OTD), is a dedicated funding initiative by Harvard to close this gap by providing funding for projects in the “gap” phase with a high probability of eventual commercial success. Faculty proposals are reviewed and selected for funding by an external advisory committee comprised of leaders from industry and the venture community. The committee’s expertise, together with the expertise of the Accelerator’s Chief Scientific Officer, are available to provide advice and guidance to the recipients of Accelerator funding as needed.
