Virtual SBIR Speaker Series | SBIR Connections: Plugging Into the DOE’s SBIR Program


The SBIR and STTR programs are U. S. Government programs, intended to help certain small businesses conduct R&D. The SBIR/STTR Programs Office works collaboratively with 13 program offices throughout the DOE to identify specific research topics selected for the SBIR and STTR program. DOE offers more than sixty technical topics and 250 subtopics, spanning research areas that support the DOE mission in Energy Production, Energy Use, Fundamental Energy Sciences, Environmental Management, and Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation. This workshop, in partnership with the Arizona Commerce Authority, will teach you the basics of DOE’s SBIR program, eligibility requirements, currently funded research topics, how to apply and additional program opportunities the DOE offers small businesses beyond SBIR.
