The SBIR/STTR Grant Writing Workshop is the first of a series of lectures to be hosted by the CELEST Catalyst aimed at bringing faculty, post docs, and students the knowledge and resources necessary to commercialize their research. The SBIR/STTR Workshop will comprise of three parts: a lecture describing the details and mechanics of winning an SBIR/STTR, Q&A, and a breakout session where attendees can brainstorm and get direct feedback from Mr. Pap. The Business Basics Round Table will give attendees the opportunity to take advantage of Mr. Pap’s years of experience in running a technology and research driven company.
The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program encourages domestic small businesses to engage in Federal Research that has the potential for commercialization. Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) expands funding opportunities in the federal innovation R&D arena. Central to the program is expansion of the public/private sector partnership to include the joint venture opportunities for small businesses and nonprofit research institutions. STTR’s most important role is to bridge the gap between performance of basic science and commercialization of resulting innovations. More information on both of these programs is available at http://www.sbir.gov/.
The Business Basics Round Table will give attendees the opportunity to take advantage of Mr. Pap’s years of experience in running a technology and research driven company. Mr. Pap will be sharing personal stories and insights into the process of commercializing technology, as well as fielding questions and covering topics from the whole gauntlet of running and growing a small business.
Breakfast will be served at the Business Basics Round Table. Refreshments will be offered at the SBIR/STTR Grant Writing Workshop.
