DOE SBIR Topics Released.

This SBIR/STTR topics document is issued in advance of the FY 2024 DOE SBIR/STTR Phase I Release 1 Funding Opportunity Announcement scheduled to be issued on August 7, 2023. The purpose of the early release of the topics is to allow applicants an opportunity to identify technology areas of interest and to begin formulating innovative responses and partnerships. Applicants new to the DOE SBIR/STTR programs are encouraged to attend upcoming topic and Funding Opportunity Announcement webinars. Dates for these webinars are listed on our website:

Topics may be modified in the future. Applicants are encouraged to check for future updates to this document, particularly when the Funding Opportunity Announcement is issued. Any changes to topics will be listed at the beginning of this document.
