The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Technology Transitions (OTT) has announced a COVID-19 Technical Assistance Program (CTAP) that provides funding for national laboratory researchers to assist U.S. entities on COVID-19 projects.
The DOE National Laboratories have unique capabilities, facilities and tools, enabling them to provide technical services, analysis, testing, and consulting to external parties.
Eligibility is limited to projects providing COVID-19-related technical assistance to U.S. entities, defined as entities that are not subject to foreign majority control.
Parties interested in applying for CTAP funding should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
CTAP funding is for technical assistance of limited duration/scope (projects up to 40 full-time-employee hours are considered appropriate). Projects exceeding that threshold will require justification.
CTAP-funded projects are not meant to be research-and-development intensive, nor are they intended to generate intellectual property.
