Total federal and non-federal:
  • CPBR's project selection process generates 130% non-federal matching for its federal funds.
  • Thus, for every $1.00 in federal funds, CPBR generates an additional $1.30 in non-federal matching, producing $2.30 worth of research.
  • Of the 130% non-federal matching, more than 50% is cash matching from industry, provided voluntarily for projects of a member company's choice.
  • Company members also provide in-kind support and make large investments in the commercialization of technologies resulting from CPBR projects.
