SBIR reauthorization

After much debate and doubt, Congress has reauthorized the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. The reauthorization came as part of the last minute deal on the defense authorization bill. The folks over at SBIR Insider have the some of the details, including the entire 107 page section of the bill. For those of you who don’t know about the program, SBIR is a technology development and commercialization program focused on small businesses. The program requires certain Federal agencies to allocate 2.5% percent of their R&D budget to small business grants.
Bottom line: an important technology program will continue.
