Topic: Government Contracting

Important Notice: The purpose of the webinar is to discuss the Department of the Navy Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Programs. SBIR/STTR programs are competitive programs for small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) with the potential for commercialization.

These programs are not for companies that sell products that are commercially available. It is for companies that specialize in research and development of new products that are not currently available for sale in the open market.

If this does not apply to your company, please do not register for the webinar.

The Department of Navy is Looking to Increase the Number of Small Businesses (Especially Underrepresented Firms) Participating in the SBIR/STTR Programs.
