The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program is a highly competitive program that encourages domestic small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) with commercialization potential.  SBIRs are competitive research solicitations enabling small businesses to explore their technological potential providing the incentive to profit from its commercialization.

There are many SBIR success stories that have started out as basic research in a University research lab and have resulted in significant commercial businesses.

This ½ day workshop will present a brief overview of the SBIR program, describing how it is administered by each funding agency.  Each year, Federal agencies with extramural research and development (R&D) budgets that exceed $100 million are required to allocate 2.8 percent of their R&D budget to these programs. Currently, eleven Federal agencies participate in the SBIR program

The instructor will also present successful approaches to wining an SBIR proposal based on personal experiences."
