SBIR/STTR Road Tour (6/20)

Time: June 20, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Location: The Ohio Union at Ohio State University

Target Audience: Innovators, Entrepreneurs, Researchers, and/or Small Technology Firms

Research Office: Research Development

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. The SBIR/STTR programs annually provide $2.5 billion in funding to small advanced technology firms to spur new technological discoveries and facilitate the commercialization of innovations. Together they represent America's Largest Seed Fund.

Local innovation supporters in communities who have historically underutilized the opportunities provided through the SBIR/STTR programs have invited representatives of America's Largest Seed Fund to engage the small advanced technology community, including women and minority-owned research and development businesses. Every SBIR Road Tour stop represents a coveted opportunity to meet directly with Federal and State Program Managers who seed a wide spectrum of innovative ideas, while learning about your state sponsored innovation support infrastructure.

So, if you're an Innovator, Entrepreneur, Researcher, or Small Technology Firm, don't miss this opportunity!

Communicating your Research - Impact and Significance (10/31)

Time: October 31, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Location: 755 Baldwin Hall

Target Audience: New and continuing faculty researchers

Research Office: Research Development

Do you know what grantmakers look for when deciding what research to fund? The answers might not be what you think. Showing grantmakers that you know what they want is as important as showing them what you can do with their money.

To learn how to effectively communicate the impact and significance of your research through the written word and visuals, we will workshop two white papers, one for a technical audience and one for a non-specialized audience. You will leave with tools you can use to effectively draft white papers and proposal summaries for your own research.

What will be covered: Faculty will gain the tools to create and practice critiquing two white papers; one for a general audience using layman’s terms and one for a technical audience. 

Presenters: Lora Arduser, A&S Associate Professor, English & Comparative Literature
Bob Hyland, A&S Assistant Professor-Educator, Rhetoric and Prof Writing
Elissa Yancey, OoR Communications Consultant
