Workshop Features

This event was held to build NASA's relationship with the small business community and increase communication between NASA and potential proposers. Attendees had the opportunity to:

  • Interact with the NASA SBIR/STTR Program Experts, Mission Directorate Representatives, and NASA Technologists
  • Learn about, ask questions, and provide feedback on selected topic areas. The information obtained through the workshop may result in small refinements to the FY17 SBIR/STTR solicitation, but the primary purpose of the workshop was to inform development of the FY18 SBIR/STTR solicitation
  • Receive a general overview of NASA’s SBIR and STTR programs and an explanation of how topic areas of interest were developed and chosen for the workshop
  • Network with other small business and industry leaders
