Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) - Technology Transfer (TT) Program

 Become a USDA SBIR Success Story!

A collaboration between the USDA's National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) SBIR program and the USDA's ARS encourages SBIR applicants to partner with ARS researchers to further develop science for business success or/and license ARS technologies and be considered for a SBIR grant.

The USDA-SBIR Request for Applications states:  "Additional factors that will be considered in the review process include whether an application involves a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with a USDA laboratory, or a license to a USDA technology, or a resubmission." In the event that two or more applications are of approximately equal merit, the existence of a CRADA with a USDA laboratory or a license to a USDA technology will be an important consideration. If one application is a resubmission, this will also be an important consideration."
