Oregon Small Business Development Center Network

Assistance with Applying for Federal Grants for Research and Development (SBIR and STTR)

To help bring innovative concepts to the marketplace and help Oregon businesses grow, we assist qualified Oregon companies in preparing proposals for Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grants. SBIR/STTR are competitive federal grant programs that award funding to small businesses—defined as 500 or fewer employees—to engage in research and development that has the potential to commercialize new technologies.
