Reauthorization and Changes to the SBIR/STTR Program

Date: Tuesday, December 13, 1:00-2:00 PM CT  

Join the FAST Center at Illinois for our December SBIR/STTR Webinar. The innovation and technology ecosystem breathed a sigh of relief when Congress approved and President Biden signed the SBIR and STTR Extension Act of 2022 (S. 4900). The reauthorization, which includes programmatic modifications and reforms, extends these vital funding programs through September 2025. Join this month’s IL FAST Center webinar to learn more about these changes, why they were introduced, and what to expect moving forward. SBIR/STTR Program Leads from SBA, DoD, HHS/NIH, and NSF will also be joining to share during this webinar.

Presenters include:

  • Bill Ruch, Chair of the Technology-Based Economic Development Practice Group at Lewis-Burke Associates, LLC.
  • Erick Page-Littleford, Senior Technology Policy Advisor for SBA’s Office of Investment and Innovation (OII).
  • Susan Celis, SBIR/STTR Program Manager for the Department of Defense (DoD).
  • Stephanie Fertig, HHS Small Business Program Lead for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) SBIR/STTR programs.
  • Erik Pierstorff, SBIR/STTR Program Director for the National Science Foundation (NSF).

This is a free, virtual event, but registration is required. The link to the webinar will be emailed to you upon completion of your registration. For more information about the IL FAST Center, click HERE.
