The U.S. National Science Foundation is a federal agency that supports research and education across all fields of science and engineering, currently with an $9.5 billion budget.
Through the merit review process, NSF funds the most innovative ideas in science and engineering. Notable NSF-supported advances include LASIK eye surgery, Doppler radar, the Internet, web browsers, bar codes, magnetic resonance imaging, inkjet printers, computer-aided design systems, tissue engineering, and other technology-based innovations that spur economic activity and improve the quality of life for all Americans.
NSF focuses on transforming scientific and engineering discoveries into products and services with commercial and societal impact through their SBIR/STTR funding. The deep technologies they fund show promise but their success hasn’t yet been validated. And, each year, $200+ million in research and development (R&D) funding is awarded to about 400 startups across the United States.
During this webinar, hear directly from SBIR/STTR Program Director Henry Ahn, who will cover:
- NSF’s newly established Technology, Innovation and Partnerships (TIP) Directorate
- Translational funding programs within TIP
- In-depth details related to NSF’s SBIR/STTR Program
- Special insights into the Biomedical Technologies topic within the SBIR/STTR Program
There will be time for live Q&A.
