A primary goal of the SD EPSCoR program is building university/industry partnerships to transfer research results to help meet national needs. A recently funded U.S. Small Business Administration FAST grant (Dr. Mel Ustad, GOED, is the PI) has created a SBIR “Phase 0” program to increase the number and competitiveness of SBIR/STTR submissions that we are submitting. SBIR “Phase 0” programs provide support and assistance to develop SBIR/STTR Phase 1 proposals. More information about the SD GOED Phase 0 program and application forms can be found by clicking on this link:SD GOED SBA FAST Phase 0
The SD EPSCoR program encourages you to participate in one of the upcoming webinars and to contact Dr. Ustad or Dr. Gary Archamboult (SD SBIR Director) to learn more about the Phase 0 program.
