ME Professors Win an Ignition Award


The Office of Technology Development has awarded the fall 2010 Ignition Award to Professors Uday Pal, Srikanth Gopalan and Soumendra Basu for their project, Large Scale Rapid Response Energy Storage and Electrical Energy Generation System.

The Ignition Award Program awards funds to Boston University faculty to bridge the gap between government-funded, discovery-oriented research and the follow-on development work performed by external commercial or non-profit entities. By enabling researchers to generate relevant data, reach key milestones, develop a prototype, or test an implementation strategy the Ignition Awards will help bring raw technology and business concepts to a mature enough state where they can be either licensed, form the basis of a new company, or create a new, non-profit social enterprise.

Congratulations Professors Pal, Gopalan and Basu.
