SBIR/STTR PROGRAM


GENERAL FEATURES
  SBIR / STTR Program
         Mission
Supporting scientific excellence and
       technological innovation
      through the investment of
        federal research funds
    in critical American priorities
to build a strong national economy…
  one small business at a time.
         Program Descriptions
  Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)
       Set-aside program for small business
2.5% concerns to engage in federal R&D --
       with potential for commercialization.

 Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR)
      Set-aside program to facilitate cooperative
0.3% R&D between small business concerns
      and U.S. research institutions -- with
     potential for commercialization.
              WHY SBIR????
Small Business Innovation Development Act of 1982

    Congress designated 4 major goals
   Stimulate technological innovation
   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
       2000 REAUTHORIZATION

    - Public Database: basic award information
       (Tech-Net-- http://technet.sba.gov)

    - Government Database: program evaluation
      (Phase II awardees -- e.g., new product sale revenues;
       other investment funding sources)
           WHY STTR????
     Small Business Research and Development
             Enhancement Act of 1992
   Stimulate and foster scientific and
    technological innovation through
    cooperative research and development

     Standard Phase I Process
Solicitation                      • Agencies describe R&D topics
  Topics                            in solicitations.

 Proposal                         • Small Business Concerns prepare
Submission                          short (usually 25-page)proposals.
               About 6-9 months


                                    Unsolicited proposals not accepted.

                                  • Agencies evaluate based on technical
Evaluation

     SBIR AND STTR PROGRAMS
      CRITICAL DIFFERENCES
   Research Partner
    SBIR: Permits research institution partners
        [Outsource ~ 33% Phase I and 50% Phase II R&D]


    STTR: Requires research institution partners
          (e.g., universities)

         30% U.S. research institution (non-profit)]

    AWARD ALWAYS MADE TO SMALL BUSINESS
   SBIR AND STTR PROGRAMS
    CRITICAL DIFFERENCES
Principal   Investigator

 SBIR: Primary (>50%) employment must
        be with small business concern

 STTR: Primary employment not stipulated
        [PI can be from research institution and/or
         from small business concern*]


        *DISCUSS WITH AGENCIES
    Important Facts to Remember
   Eligibility is determined at time of award
   No appendices allowed in Phase I
   The PI is not required to have a Ph.D. or M.D.
   The PI is required to have expertise to oversee
    project scientifically and technically
   Applications may be submitted to different
    agencies for similar work
   Awards may not be accepted from different
    agencies for duplicative projects
    Advice from Awardees
   Don’t judge an agency’s interests by
    its “name ”
   Understand agency’s mission & needs

   Get to know your agency Program
    Manager
   Read solicitation and follow
    instructions
     Advice from Awardees
 Don’t depend solely on SBIR funding
 Don’t go it alone - use support systems

 Have an outcome

 Win or lose - get and review evaluations

 Be PERSISTENT

                         Auburn, WA

Product: Instrumentation for High-Resolution Analysis of Cancer

Technology: Develop a method for tissue microdissection called "biolithography."
This method relies on a projected light pattern and suitable reagents to extract
regions of interest from a tissue sample for further analysis.

Fast-Track award = $2.2 Million (Phase I and Phase II, multi-year)

Funded under a special SBIR announcement: PAR-01-105, "Innovative
Technologies for the Molecular Analysis of Cancer“

SBIR funding was critical in establishing the feasibility of developing a
prototype automated biolithography system provide an easy and cost-
effective method to address whole organism analysis for a wide audience of
researchers and clinicians engaged in cancer analysis.
