The Innovation Institute, the Office of Sponsored Programs and Pitt consultant, McAllister & Quinn are partnering to deliver an educational program to help inform Pitt stakeholders and local businesses of SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research)/STTR (Small Business Technology Transfer) opportunities.
SBIRs and STTRs are federally funded programs that provide grants to startups and small businesses to further develop University intellectual property for the purpose of commercialization. The primary goal of the program is to introduce the available SBIR/STTR opportunities to Pitt researchers as a source of research and development funding, as well as to help them become more familiar with the process.
