Matching Grants Research
dozens of companies across Central Floridaís High Tech Corridor
participate in this multi-million dollar Matching Grants Research Program,
a program which provides matching grants to companies interested in
pursuing innovative research for product or technology development. It
does so by leveraging the strengths of the three Corridor universities:
the University of Central Florida (UCF); the University of South Florida (USF);
and the University of Florida (UF) in the development of
commercially-applicable emerging technologies.
Grants Research Program was established to foster applied research between
the partner universities and their high tech industry partners. Under the
auspices of the Florida High Tech Corridor Council (FHTCC), sponsored
research programs are currently underway at UCF and USF. UF joined this
effort in January 2005 with a commitment of $2 million for the Matching
Grants Research Program. The Councilís primary focus is to foster applied
research between the partner universities and their high tech industry
inception of the FHTCC, the Matching Grants Research Program has generated
