Round 1 (2023) Research and Development, Testing and Evaluation

The Public Wireless Supply Chain Innovation Fund

This section provides more information on the Innovation Fund’s grant program. Explore the full list of grant recipients and learn how their projects are driving wireless innovation. The Innovation Fund’s first NOFO focused on two areas: testing and evaluation (T&E) and research and development (R&D) into testing methods.


Research and Development

The Research & Development (R&D) focus area invests in the development of new/improved testing methods. These testing methods will assess the interoperability, performance, and/or security of networks.

Testing and Evaluation

The T&E focus area awards grants to proposals that streamline testing and evaluation across the U.S. Advanced access to affordable T&E lowers the barriers of entry for new and emerging entities, like small companies, start-ups, and SEDI businesses.
