Small Business Innovation Research and Technology Transfer Grants


Oregon businesses are encouraged to apply for Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grants. These competitive federal programs are designed to stimulate technological innovation and provide new opportunities for small businesses to conduct research and development (R&D) with commercialization potential.

Federal agencies that spend more than $100 million on outside R&D are required to allocate 2.8% of their R&D budgets to SBIR programs. A complete list of participating agencies is available on the SBA's web site.

While Business Oregon is not awarding grants at this time, we encourage those interested in the programs and available support, to visit these sites:
