Meet with federal funding agencies

Get On the Bus!

From the Iowa Innovation Corporation: Details are coming together for the SBIR/STTR National Road Tour in August. This conference gives Iowans the opportunity to meet face-to-face with representatives from federal funding agencies including NASA, National Institutes of Health, USDA and National Science Foundation. The national bus tour event will be Wednesday, August 17 in Ames. To prepare participants, we are again sponsoring two pre-conferences:

Monday, August 15 in Iowa City
Tuesday, August 16 in Ames

The pre-conferences are highly recommended for those who want to get the most of the 1:1 sessions with federal funders. Pre-conference speakers will be Mark and Catherine Henry, Jim Greenwood and Jordan Hobfoll. Each will provide information about SBIR/STTR programming, and will set up appointments with participants for a 10-minute prep session for Wednesday’s federal 1:1 sessions.
