SBIR/STTR Advisory Committee

The purpose of the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Advisory Committee (AdCom) is to advise the NSF program administrators on how best to accomplish the goals of the SBIR and STTR programs Note: The SBIR program and the STTR Progam is issued pursuant to the authority contained in Public Law 112-81 (SBIR/STTR Reauthorization Act of 2011).

The goals are:

  1. Stimulate technological innovation in the private sector
  2. Use small business to meet federal R&D needs
  3. Foster and encourage participation by minorities and disadvantaged persons in technological innovation
  4. Increase private-sector commercialization innovations derived from federal R&D

The SBIR/STTR Advisory Committee (AdCom) meets twice a year. Members represent a cross section of academe, industry, investment community, and state/local economic development offices with a balanced representation of women and under-represented minorities. We believe that this diversity allows the SBIR/STTR AdCom to encompass as many perspectives in the small business community as possible.
