Innovation Funding Opportunities
The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program encourages businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development. It operates a three phase program to provide entrepreneurs with funding awards for establishing technical merit/feasibility, furthering technical development, and commercializing technology.
The Small Business Innovation Technology (STTR) program similarly provides funding opportunities for collaborations between small businesses and nonprofit research institutions. STTR differs from SBIR in that the business must establish an intellectual property rights agreement with the institution and the principle investigator need not be employed by the business. STTR requires that the business perform at least 40% of R&D and the research institution perform at least 30% of R&D.
The federal government awards more than $2.5 billion annually through these programs to assist the development of groundbreaking, high-risk technologies. Federal agencies with R&D budgets exceeding $100 million annually are required to allocate 3.2% of their R&D budgets to SBIR/STTR programs. Currently, these eleven federal agencies participate in the SBIR program.
- Department of Agriculture
- National Institute of Standards and Technology (Department of Commerce)
- National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (Department of Commerce)
- Department of Defense
- Department of Education
- Department of Energy
- Department of Health and Human Services
- Department of Homeland Security
- Department of Transportation
- Environmental Protection Agency
- National Aeronautics and Space Administration
- National Science Foundation
SBIR businesses must meet the following criteria.
- Organized for profit, with a place of business located in the United States;
- More than 50 percent owned and controlled by one or more individuals who are citizens of, or permanent resident aliens in, the United States, or by another for-profit business concern that is more than 50% owned and controlled by one or more individuals who are citizens of, or permanent resident aliens in, the United States; and
- No more than 500 employees, including affiliates
- For awards from agencies using the authority under 15 U.S.C. 638(dd)(1), an awardee may be owned and controlled by more than one VC, hedge fund, or private equity firm so long as no one such firm owns a majority of the stock.
- Phase I awardees with multiple prior awards must meet the benchmark requirements for progress toward commercialization.

Grant Opportunities for Academic Liaison with Industry (GOALI) is an NSF initiative designed to stimulate collaboration between academic research institutions and industry.
A proposal with the GOALI designation in the title should feature the following:
- University-industry teams conducting collaborative and interdisciplinary research which is more likely to succeed due to the participation of the industry partner
- The opportunity for university researchers, including faculty, postdocs and students, to conduct research in an industrial environment
- The opportunity for scientists and engineers to bring industrial expertise and perspective to academic researchers
GOALI-designated proposals are reviewed by the programs to which they are submitted. In addition to meeting program-specified goals, these proposals should be transformative in nature and have the potential to further interaction between academia and industry.
More details are available here.
Partnerships for Innovation (PFI) is an NSF program that funds the translation and development of technology based on prior NSF-funded research projects. The program seeks to address critical needs of society through technology innovation while fostering project-based academic-industrial collaborations, providing training for academic researchers, and broadening the participation of women and individuals from underrepresented groups in technology development.
The PFI program consists of two tracks, PFI-Technology Translation and PFI-Research Partnerships. The PFI-TT track encourages translation of prior NSF-funded research innovations at academic research institutions into technological innovations with societal and economic benefits. The PFI-RP track also strives to convert technological innovation to commercial and societal success, however, PFI-RP supports complex, multi-faceted projects that require creation of partnerships between academic researchers and non-academic research organizations such as federal laboratories, industry and public or non-profit technology transfer organizations. Both tracks share the same four intended outcomes, namely the commercialization of intellectual property derived from NSF-funded projects, the creation of productive interactions between academic and industrial researchers, the licensing of NSF-funded technologies to start-ups or companies involved in PFI teams, and imparting innovation and entrepreneurship skills to researchers.
