The Ohio University research division will be hosting a workshop on Tuesday, March 15 to provide an overview of the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) and Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) programs as well as tips for writing competitive applications.
The speaker, Dr. William Timmons, has extensive experience with SBIR and STTR submissions.
Timmons received his BS, MS, and PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University. He has led multiple startup companies from inception through market entry, and, through his consultancy, he has worked with many large and small client companies, universities and all levels of government, often combining these diverse players into consortia to pursue novel opportunities.
The workshop will last roughly 1.5 hours, beginning at 9:40 a.m., and will be followed by a repeat session at 11:50 a.m. Then, in the afternoon, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., faculty may schedule 20-min individual meetings with the speaker.
Faculty interested in setting up a 20-minute meeting with Dr. Timmons should email Roxanne Male’-Brune at firstname.lastname@example.org.
