The Small Business Administration has just released a significant update to the SBIR/STTR policy directives and the changes took effect May 2nd. 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 for 2019, 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, Technology Transfer Tactics’ Distance Learning Division has teamed up with two experts to bring you this detailed webinar:
