Join a webinar about NSF funding for startups and small businesses
March 3, 2020
During March 2020, NSF will host a series of webinars about NSF funding to help turn discoveries into products or services with impact.
Join an upcoming webinar if you are interested in translating your technology, testing if it has market potential or just learning about NSF funding opportunities.
In each webinar, a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program director will discuss one of the many specific scientific topics funded through the NSF Division of Industrial Innovation and Partnerships.
The U.S. National Science Foundation propels the nation forward by advancing fundamental research in all fields of science and engineering. NSF supports research and people by providing facilities, instruments and funding to support their ingenuity and sustain the U.S. as a global leader in research and innovation. With a fiscal year 2021 budget of $8.5 billion, NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 40,000 competitive proposals and makes about 11,000 new awards. Those awards include support for cooperative research with industry, Arctic and Antarctic research and operations, and U.S. participation in international scientific efforts.
