      • R&D Grant: Research and development grants fund the first phase or prototyping of work. While these types of grants are most common in academia and in design professions, there are some funders interested in funding early phases of artworks.

Interdisciplinary idea competitions and prototyping tech competitions are also common examples in the US.
