Join Dr. Edward Metz, SBIR Program Manager with the U.S. Department of Education (ED) in a presentation about ED's Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. This program provides critical, early-stage research and development funding in the form of contracts and grants for educational and assistive technologies which have strong commercial potential.
Each year, the ED seeks SBIR applications that address research topics ranging from education technology products used by students or teachers, or assistive technologies to assist individuals with disabilities.
