An information session for Small Business Innovation Research will take place at UAF July 20. SBIR is a highly competitive program that encourages domestic small businesses to engage in federal research/research and development with the potential for commercialization.
Through a competitive awards-based program, SBIR enables small businesses to explore their technological potential and provides the incentive to profit from its commercialization. By including qualified small businesses in the nation's R&D arena, high-tech innovation is stimulated and the United States gains entrepreneurial spirit as it meets its specific research and development needs.
The SBIR Road Tour on July 20 will include morning and afternoon sessions and will take place in the Wood Center; a more complete schedule will be released within the next few weeks. A pdf of a flier about the national tour is linked below.
