UW Spinoff Company Receives Dept. of Energy Grant
A business in Laramie that originated at the University of Wyoming has received a $200,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) in order to develop and commercialize instrumentation platforms for the non-destructive manipulation and analysis of micro-and nano-sized materials.
The business, called Wyonics, is a scientific innovation company that was founded in 2017. Its mission is to develop sustainable technologies for Wyoming and beyond.
The DOE Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant runs for nine months, beginning this month and ending in March 2022.
After the grant period expires, the company will apply for a two-year, $1.1 million Phase II SBIR grant from the DOE to further grow the work.
