About this Webinar:
Not familiar with the requirements in the grant application when proposing to use animals in your research? What other certifications are needed as part of the Just-in-time process? What if I don’t have my own animal facility and will be using the facility at another institution? Then join this webinar to find out the answers to these questions and more.
This monthly webinar series will explore topics relevant to the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program and how researchers and small businesses can use this funding source. The series will begin with an overview of the program and its implementation at the participating agencies. Winners of the prestigious Tibbetts Award who have successfully brought their SBIR technologies to market will share their stories and tips on how they progressed from SBIR seed funding to commercialization. The series will include several webinars highlighting how large corporations partner with SBIR awardees to integrate their technologies into their supply chain.
About the SBIRs:
SBIRs/STTRs are the principal federal programs to fund research and development for the express purpose of commercialization. These programs are designed to stimulate small business technological innovation and cutting-edge research that addresses the nation’s most critical scientific and engineering needs, and to provide incentive to profit from its commercialization. Often times, university research results in a discovery that may have commercial potential but needs further research. The SBIR/STTR program may be a natural next step for those university investigators with commercially viable ideas that need to be proven and further developed.
Federal agencies with extramural (external) R&D budgets in excess of $100 million must allocate 2.5% of these funds for competitive grants to small companies.
There are presently 11 participating agencies with a total of almost $2.5 billion available for SBIR annually:
- Department of Defense - Department of Health and Human Services (NIH, CDC, FDA) - National Science Foundation - NASA - Department of Energy - Department of Homeland Security - Department of Agriculture - Department of Commerce (NIST, NOAA) - Department of Education - Department of Transportation - Environmental Protection Agency
