Spooky Business: Managing SBIR/STTR Projects 

October 11, 2023
2:00 – 3:30 pm EDT * Webinar
3:35 – 4:30 pm EDT * After the Show * Talk with the Faculty Directly!

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).

Format of webinar: 90-minute presentation, followed by 55 minutes of discussion.

In this session:
  • Participants will learn about the different types of SBIR and STTR submissions
  • Participants will gain an understanding of different approaches and guidelines/policy to SBIR/STTR submissions at different institutions
  • Participants will identify various types of potential issues that may arise during SBIR/STTR projects, from Conflict of Interest (COI), Intellectual Property (IP), budget, etc.

NCURA webinars use the Zoom Webinar platform. To confirm that you are ready to participate, please test your browser before joining the webinar, or review the more detailed system requirements.
  • It is recommended that you use a PC or MAC with an updated Internet Browser either Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Edge or Safari.  
  • Make sure you have pop-ups blockers disabled in your Internet browser settings.
  • Wifi is not recommended. The problem with WiFi is signal strength can vary causing bandwidth to increase or decrease.
  • We recommend a wired connection. A wired connection gives a consistent signal and consistent bandwidth. A wired connection provides a better experience.
  • It's better for organizations with low bandwidth to only have the webinar running on 1 computer in a conference room than having 10 individual people running the session on 10 computers at their desks.
  • Audio (sound) is projected through your computer speakers. Be sure your computer is equipped with speakers so you can hear the presenters.
