SBA accepting nominations for innovation research awards

Dec 27, 2011 - 02:10 PM
The U.S. Small Business Administration is seeking nominations for awards honoring the role small businesses play in federally funded research and development through SBA's Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer programs.
Three awards will be given: one for companies that have participated in the SBIR/STTR programs, one for individuals who advocate on behalf of the programs and one "Hall of Fame" award that recognizes companies that have an extended period of extraordinary success of research, innovation, and product commercialization within the SBIR or STTR program. The SBIR and STTR programs currently account for more than $2.5 billion annually in federal R&D funds and are coordinated by the SBA in cooperation with 11 other federal agencies with large external research and development budgets.

Nominations are due by 5 p.m. Jan. 31.  Awards will be presented in Washington, D.C., in April. To submit a nomination, visit  (Tibbetts Awards - companies and individuals) and  (Hall of Fame Awards).
