Graduate School to host proposal workshop Feb. 9-10



The University of Notre Dames Graduate School, through its Office of Technology Transfer, will host a videoconference workshop Feb. 9 and10 (Wednesday and Thursday) for Indiana-based small technology businesses outlining strategies for preparing competitive Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) proposals.

The workshop, presented by the Indiana S4 Initiative, will take place live in Indianapolis at the University Place Conference Center and by videoconference in Room G20 of Notre Dames Flanner Hall and at several other locations around the state.

The Indiana University Research and Technology Corporation (IURTC) launched the Indiana S4 Initiative last year to promote participation in the federal SBIR/STTR program by Indianas small technology business community. The Indiana S4 Initiative is a partnership composed of the IURTC, Notre Dame, the Purdue Gateways Program, Rose-Hulman Ventures and the Northeast Indiana Innovation Center.

The SBIR/STTR programs are the largest source of early stage financing for technology startups in the nation. Combined, the programs award federal grants of more than $2 billion annually.
