Georgia Tech Wearable Computing Center Engagement Grant

The grant program is open to faculty, students, and research scientists of Georgia Tech. Grants can be used to support the development of new hardware or new applications; fund the design and evaluation of new wearable technologies; or create new opportunities for internal or external collaboration, such as through workshops or speaker series.  Our hope is that the engagement grant will help inspire a sense of collaboration, and will help aid in the creations of projects showcasing wearable technology’s potential.
