Travel funds: Talk with potential partners about your innovation

Are you developing an innovation at OHSU that you’d like to talk about with potential partners? Technology Transfer and Business Development is starting a new program to provide innovative teams travel funds to promote their discoveries and technologies through targeted presentations and meetings with potential partners or at partnering conferences.

TTBD, with the OHSU Venture Development Fund, will award funds on a rolling basis to support individuals or teams with travel expenses.

To be considered, please send the following information to

  • The technology/innovation to be presented (include the TTBD Technology ID Number)
  • The conference you plan to attend and companies and individuals you plan to meet
  • Individuals who will be traveling
  • Amount of funds requested and intended use (up to $5,000)

TTBD will notify individuals/teams of funding decisions within a few weeks of receiving this information. Awards are based on availability of funds and potential for impact to society.
