You've had experience with NIH research grants - RO1s, R21s, RO3s. You are ready to transition to SBIR/STTR proposals. Piece of cake, right? Not so fast! The two mechanisms are definitely NOT the same. The participation qualifications are different. The review criteria are different. And the ultimate goal of the R&D is different.
Presented by SBIR expert, Becky Aistrup, this “Lunch and Learn” will highlight where you'll need to think, plan and write differently to be successful with the SBIR/STTR program -- and why you’ll need more SBIR/STTR training to be competitive with your proposal. Plenty of time for questions after the presentation.
