    Cost sharing can be an enigma to many new research administrators, and it can be a headache to many seasoned research administrators. What is it, is it really that daunting, and how can we turn this obligation into an opportunity? This presentation will help participants define cost sharing, identify the types of cost sharing, explain ways we can meet cost sharing requirements (including handling subs!), and touch on best practices and experiences from the presenter's time in research administration - including a discussion of understanding subrecipient cost sharing obligations.

    Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) awards are an increasingly popular way for research institutions to partner with industry on federal projects. SBIR and STTR projects are critical in the development of various technologies; however, such relationships may give rise to several competing interests. This session will discuss strategies for identifying and managing multiple competing interests when research institutions partner with a small business entity on these federal projects. We will highlight different approaches to the proposal submission and award of SBIR and STTR projects from the perspective of a Sponsored Programs Officer in an Office of Sponsored Research and Industry Contracts Officers in a Technology Transfer Office, and from a non-profit/medical center (City of Hope) and public/state institutions (University of California, Riverside and University of California, Santa Barbara).
