SBIR/STTR Policy Changes: New Challenges and New Opportunities

By David Schwartz
Published: November 19th, 2019

This summer the Small Business Administration released an update to the SBIR/STTR policy directives, and the final version contains significant policy changes that affect data rights and protections, data marking, rules related to multiple public funding sources, expanded opportunities with Phase III awards, and relaxation of rules related to multiple research institute partners.

Coupled with the National Science Foundation’s new requirement of “project pitch” before submission for an award and the NIH’s updated FOA, there are lots of new and important moving parts for TTOs, start-ups, research managers and partners to maneuver through — and one misstep can jeopardize your entire award status. At the same time, the new rules introduce valuable opportunities for expanded funding and new partnerships.

To clarify the various agencies directives and give you clear guidance on how to navigate successfully, our Distance Learning Division teamed up with SBIR/STTR experts Kristen Parmelee, President of PCG, Inc., and UNeMed Business Development Manager Joseph Runge, JD, MS, to bring you this detailed webinar: SBIR/STTR Policy Changes: New Challenges and New Opportunities. Based on rave reviews from attendees and continuing high interest in the topic, we’re offering an opportunity for those who missed the original program by hosting this pre-recorded encore presentation, scheduled for December 19.
