R&D Funding for Small Business Technology Transfer Program (STTR)

STTR is a highly competitive three-phase program that reserves a specific percentage of Federal research and development funding for award to small businesses in partnership with nonprofit research institutions to move ideas from the laboratory to the marketplace, to foster high-tech economic development and to address the technological needs of the Federal Government.

Small Business Innovation Research and Development

STTR is a small business program that expands funding opportunities in the federal innovation research and development arena. Public/private sector partnerships include joint venture opportunities for small business and the nation's premier nonprofit research institutions.

STTR's most important role is to foster the innovation necessary to meet the nation's scientific and technological challenges in the 21st century.

Competitive Opportunity for Small Business

mall business has long been where innovation and innovators thrive. But the risk and expense of conducting serious R&D efforts can be beyond the means of many small businesses.

Conversely, nonprofit research laboratories are instrumental in developing high-tech innovations. But frequently, innovation is confined to the theoretical, not the practical. STTR combines the strengths of both entities by introducing entrepreneurial skills to high-tech research efforts. The technologies and products are transferred from the laboratory to the marketplace. The small business profits from the commercialization, which, in turn, stimulates the U.S. economy.

The Office of Technology helps to strengthen and expand the competitiveness of U. S. small high technology research and development businesses in the federal marketplace. They assist in achieving the commercialization of the results of both the federal research and development programs mandated by the Small Business Innovation Development Act of 1982, the Small Business Research and Development Enhancement Act of 1992, and the Small Business Innovation Research Program Reauthorization Act of 2000.
