Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) awards and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) awards provide an opportunity to fund R&D programs in early-stage companies. As “America’s Seed Fund”, this funding also provides unique opportunities for early-career scientists to explore the process of commercializing academic research.
Join us on July 27 from 12-1:30pm for a virtual panel discussion with individuals involved in many aspects of commercializing technologies through SBIR/STTR awards. In addition, the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) SBIR Development Center created a program that targets early-career scientists and NCI’s SBIR Program Director will provide insight into this program.
This panel discussion will also help guide and improve the successful entry of early-career scientists from academic roles to Project Leader/PI and Key Personnel roles on SBIR/STTR awards.
The Applied Innovation W.Spark program aims to catalyze women's success in SBIR/STTR funding through informational workshops and one-on-one consulting with potential SBIR/STTR applicants.
