The workshop will include information on the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation programs, though it is timed to aid in proposal preparation for the April 5, 2020, NIH deadline and detailed emphasis will be placed on the NIH process.
Training will begin with SBIR/STTR basics, including eligibility requirements, participating agencies, difference between SBIR/STTR, and essential information about the NSF program.
