SBIR/STTR Phase I Proposal Writing Workshop – National Institutes of Health emphasis
The Montana Innovation Partnership (MTIP) powered by MSU TechLink helps entrepreneurial researchers and Montana small businesses compete for over $2.5 billion dollars in non-dilutive federal funding grants and contracts awarded annually through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program.
As part of the MTIP Innovation Readiness Series, we’re pleased to bring you SBIR/STTR Phase I Proposal Writing Workshop presented by Jim Greenwood of Greenwood Consulting Group. The workshop will cover all agencies, including the Department of Defense, the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, with a detailed emphasis on NIH. (Note, our Bozeman workshop on April 30, 2019, will have an emphasis on DoD.)
This interactive workshop will cover all aspects of writing SBIR/STTR Phase I proposals including:
Overview of SBIR & STTR programs, eligibility, and agency differences
Planning your SBIR/STTR proposal strategy
Preparing the draft proposal step by step
Proposal review process and debriefing
Who should attend:
Anyone planning to prepare an SBIR/STTR proposal
Anyone interested in learning more about the SBIR/STTR programs and what is involved in preparing a winning proposal
University researchers interested in partnering with SBIR/STTR applicants
Service providers or business partners supporting SBIR/STTR applicants
This event is offered in collaboration with the University of Montana Office of Research and Economic Development and the Blackstone Launchpad. This event is funded through a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration with additional funding from the Montana Department of Commerce and Montana State University.
Refreshments, snacks, and a full lunch will be provided. Contact Ann Peterson, MTIP Program Manager, for additional information at 406.994.7788 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Flathead Lake Biological Station’s (FLBS) annual Open House provides an opportunity for the public to learn more about the ecology of Flathead Lake and its watershed, as well as FLBS and its research from around the globe. The Open House allows FLBS scientists to showcase their everyday activities, as well as show examples of how our ecological research benefits Flathead Lake and subsequently area visitors and residents.
Activities this year will include:
- Tours of Biological Station facilities
- Boat trips on our 30-foot research vessel, the Jessie B
- Exhibits on recent Flathead research, including Flathead Lake ecology
- Presentations by FLBS research scientists and invited speakers
The eighth annual Center for Biomolecular Structure and Dynamics CoBRE Research Symposium provides us with the unique opportunity to come together as a research community to discuss the latest research in our laboratories supported by CBSD. The symposium includes keynote seminars by outside speakers, lectures by project leaders who are supported by the CBSD National Institutes of Health CoBRE grant and a selection of short talks by pilot project leaders and graduate students. Graduate and undergraduate students are encouraged to participate in a poster session. Attendees will learn about computational, NMR, structural biology and BioSpectroscopy Core Facilities during presentations.
Registration opens in June. Contact Sara Jestrab with questions or to be added to the email communication.
