Participation in the ATP …

* Geographic location is not a consideration in project selection. The ATP has an active outreach program that seeks to increase awareness across the entire nation of the program's opportunities for small, medium, and large businesses and other organizations. To date, ATP has received applications from organizations based in every state, and has provided funding to participating organizations located in 40 states, and the District of Columbia.

ATP and SBIR

“The SBIR and the ATP programs are different in important ways. However, they can be understood as separate steps on a national innovation ladder.”

National Research Council

The Advanced Technology Program: Assessing Outcomes

slide28
ATP is open to companies of all sizes

Some SBIR funding is agency/mission specific

ATP’s collaborative focus and flexibility of funding enable industry to address large problems

ATP funding is available to all technologies

ATP requires cost-sharing – commitment to commercialization

ATP awards in tissue engineering target a wide range of technologies that address treatment methodologies for many important families of disease. In addition to the high levels of mortality and the associated indirect cost of morbidity caused by these diseases, the annual financial burden of treatment in the United States is substantial.

atp in tissue engineering1
ATP in Tissue Engineering
  • In the field of tissue engineering, ATP has funded 51 projects; contributing nearly $100 million with corporate partnerships adding an additional $81 million.
  • The estimated market for the regeneration of bone, cartilage, and other connective structural treatments is approximately $15 billion worldwide.
  • The potential impact of ATP funded projects is therefore substantial. Benefits extend worldwide and into many different disciplines, including homeland security and biodefense applications.
