Unitec created the INNOGAP proof-of-principle fund to help researchers at UNIGE and HUG to move their research discoveries toward practical implementation. The INNOGAP fund increases the value of their inventions, improves the chances of realizing societal benefits of research and enhance UNIGE’s and HUG’s ability to license them to existing or newly created companies.
Every year, Unitec distributes up to 5 INNOGAP grants of up to 30’000CHF each to UNIGE and HUG innovators to help them finance proof-of-principle or prototyping projects.
The INNOGAP fund stems on the one side from UNIGE licensing revenues and on the other side by a yearly input from HUG.
Thus, INNOGAP grants are a solidarity contribution to boost creativity and innovation within our institutions.
