September 15, 2010

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced six Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants, one Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant, and one Xlerator award targeting advances in solid-state lighting (SSL) technology. The SBIR/STTR program seeks to increase the participation of small businesses in federal R&D.

  • Six Phase I awards will explore the technical merit or feasibility of an innovative concept or technology.
  • One Phase II award will expand on Phase I results and enable awardees to evaluate the commercial potential of new technology.
  • One Phase III Xlerator award will pursue commercial applications of work that derives from, extends, or logically concludes efforts performed under prior SBIR funding agreements (Phase I and Phase II).
