E3 Training 150 – The EPA’s Small Business Innovation Research ProgramThursday, March 8 at 1:00pm ET / 10am PTStarting in March, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will open up solicitation for Phase I of its Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program. Join Women Impacting Public Policy's (WIPP) Entrepreneurs, Energy & Environment (E3) progra's webinar as an expert from the EPA explains everything you need to know to make your submission and take advantage of this program.
- The SBIR supports small businesses to develop and commercialize new environmental technologies.
- The purpose of this program was to strengthen the role of small businesses in federally funded R&D and help spur technical innovation.
Phase I awards of $80,000 for 6 months are used for "proof of concept” of the proposed technology. Successful Phase I businesses are then eligible to compete for Phase II awards. Through this phased approach to SBIR funding, EPA can determine whether the research idea is technically feasible, whether the firm can do high-quality research, and whether sufficient progress has been made to justify a larger Phase II effort and increased funding.
