If your research group has any research outcomes which will have an immediate impact to ease the situation in the country due to Covid-19 outbreak, the University Business Linkage Cell of the University of Sri Jayewardenepura is willing to offer financial assistance to develop prototypes or to commercialize those technologies immediately.
Please note that the funds are not for initiating new research projects. The funds are mainly to encourage developing immediate, feasible and novel solutions for current issues faced by the health and other sectors (education, transport/delivery etc..) of the country.
The technology readiness level of the proposed product/technology/solution and its potential to be immediately introduced to the market/relevant agencies will be strictly considered in funding.
