Post placeholder image

The National Science Foundation released its 2009 STTR (Small Business Technology Transfer) solicitation for Phase I proposals.  The Phase I budget will be limited to $150,000 and 12 months.  NSF anticipates 35 Awards will be made.  While a STTR requires the small business to partner with a Non-Profit Research Institute for 30-60% of the research, the small business must still control the research.

NEW with this solicitation:

  1. A letter of Intent is REQUIRED and must be sent to NSF by January 14, 2009.  Full proposals will be due February 25th.
  2. The Research Investigator (RI) can now be officially recognized as a Co-PI on a STTR award. The Principal Investigator (PI) is required to be primarily employed with the small business concern at the time of award.

There is one topic–Multi-Functional Materials (MM)–with four subtopics:

  • Bio-inspired Materials and Systems (BMS)
  • Materials for Sustainability (MS)
  • Naostructured Materials (NM)
  • Smart Materials and Structures (SMS)
