It is nearly that time of year again! Time to prepare your Letters of Intent for the #DOE #SBIR. For those who missed the submission deadline for round 1 on October 15th, 2019, there is still hope! Release 2 is scheduled to be announced on December 16th, 2019! Are you ready?
The very first step when considering applying to any #SBIR #grant program is to determine fit. #SBIR programs are intended for high risk, products or ideas that can easily be scaled and commercialized. Furthermore, products or ideas must align with the list of approved agency topics. The 2019/2020 fiscal year #DOE #SBIR Round 2 solicitation includes several participating offices. Here is a list of the sub-agencies participating in the Request for Proposals (RFP)
- Office of Cyber Security, Energy Security, and Emergency Response (CESER)
- Office of Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation (NNSA)
- Office of Electricity (OE)
- Office of Environmental Management (EM)
- Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE)
- Office of Fossil Energy (FE)
- Office of Fusion Energy Sciences (FES)
- Office of High Energy Physics (HEP)
- Office of Nuclear Energy (NE)
Webinars are a great way to learn about #SBIR program solicitations, best practices, due dates, and tips. The DOE #SBIR Round 2 solicitation has three webinars schedules (see table image).
