The Advanced Research Grants Program (ARG) (previously known as Science and Technology Grants RFP) is a solicited proposal mechanism with the goal of providing proof-of-concept funding to advance locally developed science and technology projects to a point where these will be able to be further developed through alternate sources of funding (e.g. federal R&D funding, angel and private investments, etc.) and/or commercialized (through licensing, sales, acquisitions, vertical venture integration or a combination of these).
