NASA Call for Reviewers- EONS 2021 M-STTR Planning Grants
Peer Review Panelists needed for Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP)
Small Business Technology Transfer Research (M-STTR) Planning Grants
The M-STTR Research Planning Grant is intended to bring together MSI researchers and SBCs, thus maximizing the potential for long-term collaborations and enhancing the opportunities provided through the STTR program. Grants are intended to address challenges and barriers faced by the MSI research community in developing collaborative opportunities. Funding enables universities and SBCs to engage in substantive conversations along mutual areas of interest, goals, and long-term outcomes. The goals of this planning grant are to stimulate creative engagements between MSI researchers and SBCs on areas of mutual interest and develop mutually beneficial relationships that result in new technologies supporting the NASA mission and commercial market development.
The desired result is to enable viable partnership for competing in the annual SBIR/STTR solicitation. The outcome of this planning grant activity is thoroughly prepared MSI/SBC teams with action plans to respond to the annual SBIR/STTR solicitation release. For additional information on the opportunity, please go to the M-STTR webpage in the NASA Solicitation and Proposal Integrated Review and Evaluation System (NSPIRES).
