About the PSE Accelerator

The Physical Sciences & Engineering Accelerator (PSE) is designed to support Harvard's innovative physical science research by extending preliminary observations, establishing a solid proof of concept, scaling up a product or process, and generating (or enhancing) intellectual property positions.

The intent of the PSE Accelerator is to advance research projects towards one of the following value-creating inflection points:

  • Formation of a startup company
  • Licensing the technology to an established company
  • Securing follow-on industrial funding to support continued research and development

The 2021 Request For Proposals is now available. Read the full guidelines by downloading the PDF from OTD's PSE Accelerator website. Proposals are due October 16, 2020.
