NIAID’s Small Business Program Office and NC State University’s Office of Research and Innovation are hosting a Small Business Workshop in Raleigh, NC on April 23rd and 24th.
This workshop is open to all SBIR/STTR stakeholders and any other innovators who are interested in starting new biomedical ventures. The goal of this event is to prepare current and next-generation of biomedical entrepreneurs to compete in the SBIR/STTR programs administered by NIH. Attendees will learn potential opportunities and resources available for biomedical entrepreneurship and technology commercialization, in addition to receiving guidance needed to successfully develop a proposal, apply and manage NIH awards. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from federal staff, successful awardees, early stage investors and other industry experts!
The agenda will include: overviews of the NIH, CDC and NSF SBIR/STTR programs, an introduction to NIAID’s Mission and priorities for product development, commercialization information, specific programs administered by NIAID and other NIH Institutes, application/review processes, federal technology transfer and intellectual property, effective SBIR/STTR grant/proposal writing, panel discussions and one-on-one sessions.
