This STTR Phase I solicitation aims at encouraging the commercialization of previously NSF-funded fundamental research (NSF funding lineage). It is highly desirable that the core innovation described in the submitted proposals can in some manner be linked to fundamental research funded by the NSF. The proposals submitted should fall into one the nine broad topic areas, which are detailed on the SBIR/STTR topics homepage: Educational Technologies and Applications (EA)Information and Communication Technologies (IC)Semiconductors (S) and Photonic (PH) Devices and Materials Electronic Hardware, Robotics and Wireless Technologies (EW)Advanced Manufacturing and Nanotechnology (MN)Advanced Materials and Instrumentation (MI)Chemical and Environmental Technologies (CT)Biological Technologies (BT)
