SBIR Series 4/6: Better Understand the SBIR Review Process

6-part series to take you through the SBIR program with ScienceDocs consultant.

SBIRs are one of the most common non-dilutive funding mechanisms to help life science startups get started.

The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs are highly competitive programs that encourage domestic small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) with the potential for commercialization. Through a competitive awards-based program, SBIR and STTR enable small businesses to explore their technological potential and provide the incentive to profit from its commercialization. By including qualified small businesses in the nation's R&D arena, high-tech innovation is stimulated, and the United States gains entrepreneurial spirit as it meets its specific research and development needs.

Join our 6-part series with grant expert, Laura Cobb from ScienceDocs, to learn more about the SBIR program.

March 29 - Understanding the SBIR Review Process
Understanding the review process will enable you to: better understand your target audience, inform your grant creation process and interpret and respond to Summary Statements. We will also discuss what reviewers especially look for in your grant application, and how to make it easy for them to find.

April 5 - Post Phase 1 Management and Phase 2 Prep
We will discuss Just-in-Time requirements, reporting requirements, and planning for Phase 2.

April 12 - Alternatives to the NIH (DoD & NSF)
Although the NIH is a great funding resource, we will discuss alternative SBIR programs that may be useful including DoD and NSF.
