Texas Emerging Technology Fund - RCICs
Regional Center of Innovation and Commercialization were established by the Legislature to support the activities for a specified region; research and development, commercialization of research and development, incubation and acceleration for businesses related to research and development, and workforce training for businesses related to research and development. The RCICs work with the Office of the Governor and the TETF Advisory Committee to identify, evaluate, and submit promising proposals from their respective regions to the TETF Advisory Committee. The TETF Advisory Committee makes final recommendation on awards. RCICs work closely with applicants in assisting with TETF proposal development, post-proposal debriefings, and commercialization activities. In addition, RCICs are a strong focal point to increasing cooperation and spurring collaboration between industrial, financial, and academic entities.
