Course 3: An Introduction to the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) & Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Programs - for SBA District Office Personnel only

This course has been especially designed for SBA District Office personnel who from time to time may be called upon to make a presentation on the Small Business Innovation Research and/or Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. It’s designed for those of you who want to feel more confident addressing Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and making referrals to service providers and university personnel in the district you serve.

Comprised of five lessons, this course will require one hour a week to attend a live webinar and an additional hour to complete a weekly assignment. The purpose of the assignment is to provide you with the opportunity to use the materials discussed in the webinar, as using the concepts enhances learning. At the conclusion of this course you will be prepared to use a new set of slides on the SBIR/STTR program that reflects the changes taking place in this dynamic field.
