The fund is a development program established to support projects that advance the commercial value of Purdue intellectual property. The fund makes awards twice a year to aid faculty and staff with their patented innovations that are being commercialized through the Purdue Research Foundation Office of Technology Commercialization.
 
There are three Trask Innovation Fund tracks: Innovation Sparks for Life Science; Innovation Sparks for Physical Sciences; and Commercialization Partner Spark.
