The Innovation Voucher program helps Rhode Island businesses with fewer than 500 employees access the expertise they need to develop a new product or process. Through the program, companies can receive grants of up to $50,000 to fund R&D assistance from a Rhode Island university, research center or medical center. New in 2018, Rhode Island manufacturers can use the Innovation Voucher to fund an internal R&D project.
For more information, please contact Christine Smith, Managing Director of Innovation Programs, at the Rhode Island Commerce Corporation.
