Kristine Ann Johansen, Ph.D.


Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grants now represent the largest source of early-stage funding for innovative research and development projects. In this 75-minute program, Dr. Kris Johansen, SBIR/STTR program administrator for Iowa State University's Office of Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer, will bring much needed business and valuation clarity to the nuances of SBIR/ STTR programs. Dr. Johansen's webinar will cover what every entrepreneur, intellectual property manager, investor, university and private researcher/scientist needs to know with respect to SBIR/STTR grants, including topic areas, proposal preparation and submission, number and timing of solicitations, funding levels, types of potential awards, and the (proposal) review process. Key facets of the SBIR/STTR programs will be discussed as well in terms of program phases, eligibility requirements, distinguishing/projecting participating agencies research needs, and avoiding common pitfalls.
