TIP is aimed at speeding the development of high-risk, transformative research targeted to address key societal challenges. The program will fund small and medium-sized businesses, universities, and research consortia on a competitive, cost share basis for research on potentially revolutionary technologies for meeting critical national needs that present high technical risks-with commensurate high rewards if successful.

TIP anticipates announcing one or more competitions in Spring 2009, and the program recently completed its first competition solicitation in the area of “Sensing Technologies for Civil Infrastructure”.
