About the PSE Accelerator
The Physical Sciences & Engineering Accelerator (PSE) is designed to support Harvard's innovative physical science research by extending preliminary observations, establishing a solid proof of concept, scaling up a product or process, and generating (or enhancing) intellectual property positions.
The intent of the PSE Accelerator is to advance research projects towards one of the following value-creating inflection points:
- Formation of a startup company
- Licensing the technology to an established company
- Securing follow-on industrial funding to support continued research and development
The 2021 Request For Proposals is now available. Read the full guidelines by downloading the PDF from OTD's PSE Accelerator website.
