Join the Yale Office of Cooperative Research (OCR) for an intensive, two-day workshop focused on proposal development for the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)/Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program.
Each year the SBIR/STTR federal program provides billions of dollars in non-dilutive grant funding to U.S. small businesses to advance and commercialize innovative technologies.
Strategic proposals and a thorough understanding of the funding agencies’ goals are necessary to win awards in this competitive federal program. At the workshop, Lisa Kurek, a nationally recognized SBIR/STTR expert, will provide detailed instruction about developing competitive proposals for the National Institute of Health (NIH).
Sponsored by CTNext, the free event will take place Wednesday, March 7 and Thursday, March 8 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the events hall in New Haven.
The workshop is designed for Connecticut-based entrepreneurs interested in SBIR/STTR funding.
The free workshop includes a light lunch. Registration is accepted on a first come, first served basis.
In addition to basic information about SBIR/STTR, Lisa will cover:
- Specifics of the NIH SBIR/STTR programs
- Essential information for preparing each section of your proposal
- Writing to meet the expectations of reviewers
- Navigating the e-submission process
- Common problems and pitfalls and how to avoid them
Lisa will focus on NIH proposal preparation and essential commercialization strategies. The afternoon will consist of one-on-one meetings to discuss your company’s technologies and funding goals.
