Opportunity: 2019 SBIR/STTR Phase I Release 2


The objectives of the SBIR/STTR programs include increasing private sector commercialization of technology developed through DOE-supported research and development (R&D), stimulating technological innovation in the private sector, encouraging participation by women-owned and minority-owned small businesses, and improving the return on investment from Federally-funded research for economic and social benefits to the nation. DOE will support high-quality research or R&D on innovative concepts concerning important mission-related scientific or engineering problems and opportunities that have high potential for commercialization. The DOE SBIR/STTR Programs do not support either basic science or demonstration projects. Other than different eligibility requirements (see Part III – Eligibility Information), the major difference between the SBIR and STTR programs is that STTR grants must involve substantial cooperative research collaboration between the small business and a single Research Institution (see definitions in Appendices/Reference Material at the end of this FOA). However, it should be noted that the SBIR program also permits substantial collaboration between the small business and other organizations, including Research Institutions. The difference is that in SBIR, the collaboration is optional, while in STTR, the collaboration is required and must be cooperative in nature. To increase the number of high-quality SBIR/STTR Phase I applications submitted to the DOE by women-owned or minority-owned small businesses, and small businesses from DOE’s underrepresented states (see eligible state list below), the DOE provides a variety of application preparation and other related services, free of charge. Phase 0 services are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis to eligible applicants.
