NASA has selected 300 Small Business Innovation Research and 40 Small Business Technology Transfer research proposals.

The small business innovative projects have a total value of approximately $21 million; technology transfer projects have a total value of approximately $4 million. The innovative research contracts will be awarded to 219 small, high technology firms in 36 states. The technology transfer contracts will be awarded to 39 small, high technology firms in 17 states.

Selected proposals may receive up to $70,000 for a small business innovative research contract and up to $100,000 for a technology transfer contract.

The goals of the small business innovative research program are to stimulate technological innovation; increase the use of small businesses in meeting federal research and development needs; and increase private sector commercialization of innovations derived from federally funded research.

The goals of the small business technology transfer program are similar. The program also requires a collaborative research effort between a small business and a research institution.
