This online course will train and expose entrepreneurs, graduate students, researchers, and faculty members to the SBIR/STTR programs, which provide them the opportunity to get their research to the market place. These programs are designed for high risk research and real emphasis is placed on commercialization. The attendees will learn that each agency runs their programs in a slightly different manner and it is vital to understand what the customer, the federal agency, is seeking. Common errors and tips in writing a good proposal are covered. The expected outcome of this course is to give the researchers an advantage in knowing how the proposals are reviewed and what to include in a competitive proposal.
