Description

Virginia Growth and Opportunity Board and Virginia Research, Development, and Commercialization Fund; established; report. Establishes the Virginia Growth and Opportunity Board (the Board) to administer grants from the Virginia Research, Development, and Commercialization Fund (the Fund), created by this bill, to promote research, development, and commercialization in the Commonwealth and economic development related thereto. The bill provides that the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) will establish guidelines related to administration and award of grants from the Fund, subject to approval by the Board. Upon receipt of completed grant applications, SCHEV will forward them to an entity with recognized science and technology expertise to review and rank the applications. Applications will then be forwarded to a Research Proposal Review Committee to evaluate the potential economic impact of the proposals. The Board would ultimately make award decisions, taking into account the recommendations from these review panels.
