These Lunch & Learns are for any Virginia based university researcher, postdoc, grad student or local small business interested in learning the benefits of the SBIR and STTR programs. SBIR grants (Small Business Innovation Research) and STTR grant program (Small Business Technology Transfer) provide $150K - $1.5M in early stage R&D funding for high risk, new technology development.
11 participating federal agencies use this program to fund early stage technology development that will help them meet their missions. Over $2.3 Billion is available each year in this program.
Each session will discuss the purpose of the programs, basic qualifications, participating agencies, funding amounts, and how to start to plan your approach to writing a winning proposal. We'll also provide a brief discussion on how university PosDocs and Graduate students can participate in these programs. Details on how CIT supports Virginia based applicants will also be discussed.
