April 16 to April 20, 2018 The SBIR Road Tour is a national outreach effort to convey the non-dilutive technology funding opportunity provided through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. Federal and State Program Managers representing $2.5 billion in early stage funding have been invited to present at a series of events to next generation technology entrepreneurs and innovation supporters from across the United States. This event is a coveted opportunity for those involved in the development of groundbreaking, high-risk technologies, including women-owned and minority-owned firms.

If you’re an innovator, entrepreneur, researcher, or small technology firm, don’t miss this opportunity.

Every SBIR Road Tour stop provides an in-depth understanding of agency technology funding priorities, a review of regional innovation support resources, and one-on-one meetings with high level decision makers.

Just a reminder…..if any of your tenants, clients, faculty, program managers, companies, etc. plan to attend the 2018 SBIR Road Tour event coming up April 20th in B .Rouge, and they plan to schedule time for one-on-one meetings, they should complete a Quad Chart (sample attached) and bring copies with them to hand to the various SBIR-STTR federal program agency representatives as they talk about their technologies to offer as a proposal. It would also be a really good idea if attendees did an agency/topic search on their ideas/technology prior to the event. This can be done at www.sbir.gov You can search by agency, year, or enter some key word searches at that site. Any preparation like this will make your one-on-one meeting go a lot smoother and demonstrate you have taken time to do some “homework.” Also keep in mind I have a short PowerPoint that is a prep for the April 20th event if you want it. Again, this is all designed to insure that participants get maximum benefit while attending the event.

NASA will be hosting a Technical Interchange Meeting (TIM) with Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) researchers at the GSFC facility in Greenbelt, MD on Wednesday June 27, 2018. As part of the NASA EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Development (RID) program here in Louisiana we are soliciting applicants who would like to attend this TIM and investigate new avenues of research with NASA partners. The TIM will be hosted on the GSFC campus where the morning of 6/27 will consist of round table discussions with individual research groups followed by lunch on-site at GSFC. The afternoon will include research laboratory familiarization. Research topics discussed during the TIM will be a subset of the GSFC research areas listed at the end of this email. Applicants should identify their top three choices from the list. Travel up to about $1,500 per person would be paid through a Louisiana NASA EPSCoR Travel Assistance Program (TAP) award. The travel estimate assumes three days of travel, with meals and rental car plus lodging at a TBD conference hotel near GSFC. It is expected that travel to Greenbelt, MD will take place on Tuesday June 26 and return to Louisiana will occur on Thursday June 28. Airfare to Baltimore / Washington International (BWI) airport (nearest to GSFC) is included in the travel estimate. Note that no foreign nationals will be allowed to attend this meeting. However, lawful permanent residents (green card holders) should be able to participate (I will need to check on this one). If you wish to participate in the GSFC TIM you must email me at guzik@phunds.phys.lsu.edu with the following information as soon as possible and definitely before April 1, 2018 1. Statement that you are committed to attend the GSFC TIM 2. List of your top three GSFC research topics. 3.

SBIR “Road Tour” event which is coming to Louisiana April 20th of this year. This is going to be a very special one-of-a-kind SBIR-STTR Program, which we only do once every 2-3 years. Our office, in conjunction with the U.S. SBA Office of Innovation is organizing this event which will bring numerous SBIR-STTR program managers from the various federal agencies into Louisiana to provide update briefings and to meet with attendees one-on-one (reservations made in-advance and limited to time available). Because of the nature of this event, and since the federal portion is only slightly more than ½ day, we are working with several co-sponsors to hold other SBIR-STTR sessions prior to and after the Road Tour portion that you can take advantage of. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sbir-road-tour-tickets-43328185770

We are pleased to announce that a revised version of the NSF Grants.gov Application Guide has been issued. The NSF Grants.gov Application Guide has been updated to align with changes to NSF’s Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 18-1). Information about FastLane system registration has been removed and replaced with guidance for registering in Research.gov. Editorial changes have also been made to either clarify or enhance the intended meaning of a sentence or section or to ensure consistency with data contained in NSF systems or other NSF policy documents. The new NSF Grants.gov Application Guide will be effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 29, 2018. If you have any questions regarding these changes, please contact the Policy Office on (703) 292-8243 or by e-mail to policy@nsf.gov. For technical questions relating to Grants.gov, please contact Grants.gov directly at 1-800-518-4726 or support@grants.gov.
