An SBIR/STTR grant provides funding assistance for company-defined R&D projects that, when successful, will lead to commercial opportunities that have been identified by the proposing company. In contrast, a contract is a well-defined procurement mechanism in which the funding agency specifies obligations, responsibilities and deliverables for R&D projects that are expected to result in products or services that address a problem or opportunity at that agency.
Determining if your technology is best suited for a granting (i.e., NIH, NSF, DOE) or a contracting (i.e. DOD, NASA, DHS) agency will dictate many aspects of proposal preparation, from your initial planning and interactions with agency personnel to nitty-gritty details. This session will describe the differences between granting and contracting agencies, how to determine the best fit for your technology and how to tailor your proposal for each
Complimentary admission, but registration is required.
