This workshop is a must if you are considering an NIH submission. This day and a half training will begin by reviewing the SBIR/STTR program basics including what they fund, which federal agencies participate, how the money can be used and the differences between the SBIR and STTR programs. The first session will conclude with an overview of NSF and NIH specifics, to help guide your project planning. Then will take a deep dive into NIH proposal preparation, with a detailed explanation of each section of your proposal. Day two begins with developing the key components of a commercialization plan with emphasis on NIH requirements. The final session of the day will be a review of the NIH Assistance programs and ending with how to construct a strong budget.
