About this event

Numerous federal agencies employ the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs to stimulate technological innovation by funding research and development efforts that partner small businesses and nonprofit research institutions. In the first hour of this seminar, an National Science Foundation program officer will discuss opportunities associated with SBIR/STTR as well as the ICORP program. In the second hour of the seminar, Drew Hamilton, professor and director of Mississippi State's Center for Cyber Innovation, will address a variety of questions including: How can I use SBIR/STTR to access federal funding streams? What are the pros and cons of working with a small business? How do I recognize a good partner? What are best practices?
