“The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is now accepting proposals for its 2018 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) awards. The competitive program encourages domestic small businesses to engage in federally funded research and development opportunities that have the potential for commercialization. Applications for Phase I will be accepted through April 4, 2018.
Phase I awardees receive up to $100,000. If accepted into Phase II, awardees may obtain funding up to $300,000 to continue their work. In Phase III, non-SBIR funds are used for technology commercialization.”
