This panel will present opportunities available to small businesses interested in conducting R&D to advance and commercialize federal technologies. SBIR TT is an approach which has been adopted by several agencies that identifies technologies developed in the federal labs and can become the basis of SBIR projects. SBIR TT awards provide small businesses with access to the background technologies, funding and other assets that support advancement of federal research toward practical application. Panelists from NIH, DOE, NASA and NIST will discuss how their agencies operate SBIR TT and explain how small businesses can best take advantages of these opportunities. Panelists: Manny Oliver (DOE), Rob Vinson (NIH), and Joseph Grant (NASA)
