NSF SBIR/Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I Programs - Rolling Deadline

Opportunity Title:

NSF Small Business Innovation Research / Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I Programs

 

Funder/Agency:

National Science Foundation (NSF)

 

Opportunity Number:

24-579

 

Description:

The NSF SBIR/STTR programs provide non-dilutive funds for use-inspired research and development (R&D) of unproven, leading-edge, technology innovations that address societal challenges. By investing federal research and development funds into startups and small businesses, NSF helps build a strong national economy and stimulates the creation of novel products, services, and solutions in the private sector; strengthens the role of small business in meeting federal research and development needs; increases the commercial application of federally-supported research results; and develops and increases the U.S. workforce, especially by fostering and encouraging participation by socially and economically-disadvantaged and women-owned small businesses.


NSF seeks unproven, leading-edge technology innovations that demonstrate the following characteristics:

  • The innovations are underpinned and enabled by a new scientific discovery or meaningful engineering innovation.

  • The innovations still require intensive technical research and development to be fully embedded in a reliable product or service.

  • The innovations have not yet been reduced to practice by anyone and it is not guaranteed, at present, that doing so is technically possible.

  • The innovations provide a strong competitive advantage that are not easily replicable by competitors (even technically proficient ones).

  • Once reduced to practice, the innovations are expected to result in a product or service that would either be disruptive to existing markets or create new markets/new market segments.

 

The NSF SBIR/STTR programs fund broadly across scientific and engineering disciplines and do not solicit specific technologies or procure goods and services from startups and small businesses.


Eligibility:

Proposers must obtain an official invitation to submit a proposal. To receive the invitation, potential proposers must submit a Project Pitch and receive an official response (via email) from the cognizant Program Officer.


Firms qualifying as a small business concern are eligible to participate in the NSF SBIR/STTR programs
