  13. The SBIR/STTR Program Small Business Innovation Development Act of 1982 Congress designated 4 major goals • Stimulate technological innovation in the private sector • Use small business to meet federal R&D needs • Foster and encourage participation by minorities and disadvantaged persons in technological innovation • Increase private-sector commercialization innovations derived from federal R&D

  14. TOTAL ~ $2.5 B FY 2008 SBIR / STTR Participating Agencies • DOD SBIR/STTR • HHS SBIR/STTR • NASA SBIR/STTR • DOE SBIR/STTR • NSF SBIR/STTR ~$108M • DHS SBIR • USDA SBIR • DOC SBIR • ED SBIR • EPA SBIR • DOT SBIR 14

  15. SBIR Program Details • Funds set-aside for SBIR • ~$108 million for Phase I, II, and IIB combined • SBIR = 2.5% of NSF R&D budget • STTR = 0.3% of NSF R&D budget • Grantee must be Defined as a Small Business: • Set up as a profit organization with 500 or few employees • Special STTR Requirements • Cooperation research agreement between small business and university/non-profit research institution in place to protect intellectual property • A minimum of 40% of budget resides with the small business; a minimum of 30% of the budget goes to the university/non-profit research institution; the remaining 30% can be distributed as appropriate for the project • Three-Phase Approach: • PHASE I – Feasibility Research (6 – months - $100,000) • PHASE II – Research Toward Prototype (24 – months - $500,000) • PHASE IIB – Matching Funds against outside investment (12 – months up to an additional $500,000) • PHASE III – Product Development to First Revenues (non-SBIR/STTR funding)

  16. Market Driven Solicitation Topics • SBIR (only) solicitation currently opened. NSF 08-548. Closes June 10, 2008. • SBIR topics: • Biotech and Chemical Technologies (BC) • Electronics, Components and Engineering Systems (EL) • Software and Services • STTR (only) solicitation will be released in the Fall of 2008 • STTR topics: • To be Determined (most likely Materials/Manufacturing)

  17. Program Information • NSF is not the final customer • NSF does not buy product/process or software or intellectual property • NSF wants grantees to successfully commercialize high-tech research • Investment $ beyond SBIR is needed

  18. Supplements 19 NSF supplements to existing grants are important driver for small businesses to partner with industry. Currently over 20% of NSF SBIR/STTR grant funds go towards supplements as an optimum way to “bridging the gap”.
