The APS Innovation Fund provides funding to advance collaborative projects that support the APS mission "to advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics for the benefit of humanity, promote physics, and serve the broader physics community."
Since 2019, the Fund has received hundreds of proposals, thirteen of which were funded. In November 2022, the APS Board of Directors voted to pause the Innovation Fund solicitation while a review committee administers a comprehensive review of the fund. The independent review committee will develop findings and recommendations for future iterations of the Innovation Fund.
