SBIR and STTR Directory

December 2001

Under the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program, companies with 500 or fewer employees can receive grants of up to $850,000 for early-stage research and development. The Small Business Administration (SBA) coordinates the program, but the R&D projects come from a consortium of 10 federal agencies, with the Defense Department accounting for approximately half of the total budget. If the research proves successful, companies are expected to obtain funding from the private sector or other government sources.

The Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) program allows small companies to conduct cooperative research with an institution such as a university or government agency on a subject designated by the sponsoring agency. Normally the research topics have commercialization potential beyond their initial government application.
