Department of Energy Announces $30 Million in Research and Development Grants

Mar 2, 2018

The Department of Energy (DOE) recently announced that it is awarding $30 million in grant funding through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs for Phase I Research and Development. These grants are intended for small businesses to research new innovative technologies that would support the Office of Science, and determine if they can be applied. Phase I grants run for 6-12months in duration and provide a median award of $150,000.

All successful Phase I grant winners are eligible to apply for Phase II awards in FY19, which will allow them to build on and “validate” their Phase I findings.
