Need advice on how to craft a research and development government funding proposal that could benefit your small business? The Nebraska Business Development Center is offering workshops to help.
The NBDC, which is a department of the University of Nebraska at Omaha's College of Business Administration, is hosting two all-day workshops in March that will focus on SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) and STTR (Small Business Technology Transfer) proposals.
On March 13, a 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. workshop will focus on the basics of SBIR and STTR proposals. Representatives from the Department of Energy, National Institute of Health and Department of Defense will be available for one-on-one meetings to answer questions and describe their general research and development needs. Because space is limited, one-on-one meetings require preregistration by March 11 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On March 14, a 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. workshop will focus on how to best estimate the cost of a SBIR and STTR proposals.
Each workshop costs $35 for Nebraska residents and $59.99 for out-of-state attendees. The price includes a networking lunch and free critique of an SBIR and STTR proposal. The workshops will be in 100 Mammel Hall on UNO's Pacific Street Campus.
Attendees must register for the workshops at nbdc.unomaha.edu/SBIRworks. Payments can be made by phone at 402-554-2521 or the day of the event. For questions, contact Marisol Uribe Rodriguez at 402-554-6270 .
