About the I2P Student Challenge-CSUPERB Research Scholars Award

CSUPERB is pleased to kick-off this year’s system-wide early-stage biotechnology commercialization challenge!

Expected Award Amount: $5000

Program Description

The CSUPERB Idea to Product (I2P®) Competition is an early-stage biotechnology commercialization plan competition for CSU students. The I2P® Competitions were designed and pioneered at The University of Texas at Austin by engineering professor Dr. Steven Nichols and colleagues.  As they explain it, “the phrase Idea to Product refers to applying creative thought to a technology (“Idea”) and developing a market application (“Product”) for that technology.” This year’s I2P® competition will culminate at the 25th Annual CSU Biotechnology Symposium (January 4-5, 2013).

One hallmark of the I2P® program is that scientists and engineers with no previous experience in technology commercialization can be competitive.  Competition CSU teams pair science/engineering students with business students.  Symposium registration, lodging, meals and travel reimbursements for finalist teams and two faculty mentors will be provided by CSUPERB.  At least $5000 in awards will be made to finalists at the symposium.


Sounds like a really good opportunity to sharpen your skills, network with motivated individuals and, who knows, you might actually win some money as well. Remember, if you are interested please get in touch with me at tlindsay@fullerton.edu.
