Superfund Research Program
Small Business Innovation Research (R43/44) (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) (R41/42) grants are awarded to foster the commercialization of technologies, products and devices developed by the SRP and others. Please refer to the Hazardous Substances Detection and Remediation Program for information about the SRP SBIR/STTR program. The SRP SBIR/STTR grants are made under the NIH Omnibus Solicitation. Please refer to the NIH Small Business Research Funding Opportunities for the most current funding opportunity announcement.
See the SBIR/STTR grantee flyer(394 KB) for more on recently funded grantees and the SRP small business program.
On April 2, 2015, NIEHS, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the National Science Foundation (NSF) presented a webinar titled: "Small Business Funding Opportunities (SBIR/STTR) for Environmental Technologies." This webinar was designed to help small businesses and academic researchers better understand (1) the different agencies that fund environmental technologies and (2) the fundamental goals of the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. The archive can be accessed on the Clu-in website.
