SBIR grants (Small Business Innovation Research) and it's sister STTR grant program (Small Business Technology Transfer) provide $150K - $1M in early stage R&D funding. 11 participating federal agencies use this program to fund early stage technology development that will help them solve their problems and meet their missions. $2.5B is available in this program, with the main purpose to commercialize the funded technology.

The Sept. 25 session in Charlottesville will provide detailed instruction on strategy and technical proposal preparation, with a focus on the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  With over $500M available in their SBIR/STTR programs, the NIH SBIR/STTR programs allow for investigator initiated topics to be proposed and funded.  From software development, training, IT, and new drugs, NIH funds a wide range of research with most topics proposed by the researcher.
