What is the TURBO program?
The TURBO program, or Tech Transfer, University, Research and Business Opportunity, is an economic development initiative that supports the commercialization of novel dairy technologies and products. The program was started in 2012 when CDR was awarded one of seven two-year, $1 million i6 challenge grants from the U.S. Department of Commerce to commercialize research ideas that will positively impact economic development.
Whether your company is interested in licensing a CDR technology or working with CDR to develop a novel technology or product, the TURBO program can help bring your idea to the market. CDR’s partners, including those listed below, have graciously offered their assistance and resources to those who work with the CDR TURBO program. This assistance may include technical support, reimbursable grants, market research or another form of business assistance. For more details visit the TURBO website or contact TURBO Manager firstname.lastname@example.org
