Summary

  • The purpose of the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)/Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant mechanism is to stimulate technological innovation through facilitating private-sector commercialization of research advances.

  • Small business entities do not need to relinquish equity in exchange for SBIR/STTR funding.

  • A key difference between SBIR and STTR grants is that the STTR requires university par­ticipation, which is optional for the SBIR.

  • SBIR/STTR applications can be submitted in conjunction with more traditional R01/R21 grant applications and are ideal for exploring the commercialization potential of research results.
