This webinar will offer small businesses and academic researchers an opportunity to hear from some of the Federal agencies that fund water technologies, with a special focus on investments in nanotechnology-enabled solutions. Webinar speakers will describe the fundamental goals of the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs at various agencies and share details of current and upcoming solicitations.
The SBIR and STTR programs fund a diverse portfolio of startups and small businesses across technology areas and markets to stimulate technological innovation, meet Federal research and development (R&D) needs, and increase commercialization to transition R&D into impact.
The webinar will be co-hosted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI). Representatives from the EPA, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the National Science Foundation (NSF) will provide an overview of their current and upcoming SBIR/STTR funding opportunities for water nanotechnologies. The agencies' presentations will be followed by a Q&A session.
