Pre-proposal Teleconference for

MUREP-Small Business Technology Transfer Research (M-STTR) Planning Grants


Thursday, May 13, 2021

1:00-3:00 pm Eastern Time

This NASA Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) invites proposals in response to EONS-2021: Appendix L: 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.


The NASA M-STTR Pre-proposal teleconference will give an in-depth overview of the opportunity. During the session, information regarding proposal preparation, guidelines and requirements will be provided. Please go to the NASA M-STTR page in NSPIRES for information on how to join the call. Any changes to this session will be posted on the site, and you are strongly advised to check for any updates before joining.


For complete information on the Engagement Opportunities in NASA, please go to the EONS-2021 page in NSPIRES, with Appendix L providing specific information regarding the M-STTR opportunity.


There will be a chance to ask questions at the end of the teleconference, but the best way to have your questions addressed is to email them to


We look forward to you joining and appreciate your interest in NASA STEM opportunities.
