Northwest to host workshop about federal grants

MARYVILLE, Mo. - The Northwest Missouri State University Small Business and Technology Development Center will host an informative workshop about federal grant opportunities.

The workshop, titled "Winning Federal Grants for Technology Development," is sponsored by the Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) and Small Business Tech Transfer and Research (STTR).

It will be 3 to 5 p.m. Monday, Dec. 6, at the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE).

To register, contact the CIE at 660.562.1701 or fveeman@nwmissouri.edu. Registration is $35, or free for Northwest employees.

Topics will include program background and requirements, agency selection criteria, key proposal components, pre-proposal analysis, proposal preparation and quality control, proposal evaluation and post-submittal analysis and commercialization planning.

The U.S. Government provides more than $2 billion annually to hundreds of small, high-tech firms through SBIR and STTR programs. These programs are aimed at the development of early-stage, high-risk, high-payoff technologies in areas such as life sciences, information technology, manufacturing, defense and homeland security.
