 SBIR 101: How to create a competitive SBIR grant application.


Dr FarellThis is a must attend event for any entrepreneur trying to pursue SBIR and other forms of government grant funding. Dr. David Farrell will share decades of experience successfully soliciting federal grants (SBIR, STTR, etc.) from the federal government. Unlike other seminars and workshops, Dr. Farrell takes a hands on approach. From teaching you the history of the programs, to actually logging onto the relevant sites and completing registration forms, participants complete the practical steps necessary to jumpstart their submissions.


Dr. Farrell's workshop will cover the broadest spectrum of federal programs, including SBIR/STTR programs for the National Science Foundation (NSF), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), with an emphasis on the National Institutes of Health (NIH). In addition, the huge Department of Defense budget will also be explored, including a few little-known pots of money--including: the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP), Air Force, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Navy, Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), and Army SBIR/STTR programs and other non-SBIR contract programs.


This interactive session will include attendees downloading onto their own laptops each of the subsections of the application forms while Dr. Farrell explains proven strategies for creating competitive applications. This class is focused on overcoming the barriers standing between you and a funded grant.

  • New interactive map shows bioscience companies in Oregon

    Anyone who would like to see how many bioscience companies are in Oregon can search a new interactive map.

    The Oregon Translational Research and Development Institute today announced the launch of the Oregon Bioscience Ecosystem and Map.

    It includes a comprehensive database and searchable map on OTRADI’s website. You can search bioscience companies by area of focus, such as therapeutic, medical device diagnostic and digital health, or by company size and location.

    The map contains about 200 unique entries. Those not represented on the map can add themselves.

    “Oregon’s growing bioscience industry is driving innovations that will save lives and improve health care, while at the same time, creating valuable jobs across the state,” Jennifer Fox, OTRADI’s executive director said in a statement.

    “This interactive map is a powerful tool for accelerating the growth and success of Oregon’s bioscience throughout the state. It will function as a resource for companies relocating to Oregon, for investors interested in specific industry sectors, and for companies looking for partnerships or assistance as they grow.”

    Gov. Kate Brown last week announced$400,000 in grant support for Oregon companies participating in federal grant programs, which is potentially good news for bioscience startups.

    And a recently formed group, the Central Eastside Development Task Force, is hoping to jumpstart a bioscience hub in Portland’s inner southeast quadrant.
