BEM Controls was awarded FY2017 Commonwealth Research Commercialization Fund Awards representing targeted areas of promising research commercialization, including advanced manufacturing, cyber security, energy, environment, information technology, life sciences, and unmanned systems.
BEM Controls' entry went through a rigorous application process where the applications underwent a four-step review process beginning with administrative compliance performed by the Center for Innovative Technology (CIT) and followed by a subject matter evaluation reviewed by subject matter experts drawn from industry, academia and government. Applications were then evaluated by members of the Research and Technology Investment Advisory Committee (RTIAC), a board of university, industry and economic development experts who made recommendations for funding to the CIT Board of Directors for final approval. Managed by CIT, the CRCF supports technology priorities identified in the Commonwealth Research and Technology Strategic Roadmap.
