SBIR/STTR Grant Partnerships
Also known as America's Seed Fund, SBIR/STTR programs are one of the largest sources of early-stage capital for technology commercialization in the United States. These federal programs provide critical funding for academic/business partnerships working toward product development.
In collaboration with the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR), Tech Park has held three workshops designed to educate small businesses and faculty on SBIR/STTR programs.
The objective of these workshops was to establish “dream teams” composed of UConn faculty and business partners and guide them in applying for and winning DoD/Navy, NSF and DoE SBIR/STTR grants/contracts.
