National Institutes of Health

Application Receipt Date:  December 1, 1994

Innovative technologies and methodologies fuel progress in biomedical

and behavioral research and represent an increasingly important area of

the economy.  The Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program

provides support to small business concerns -- in collaboration with

U.S. research institutions -- for research or research and development

(R&D) of new technologies and methodologies that have the potential to

succeed as commercial products.

The purpose of this notice is to inform the public about the

opportunities that the STTR program offers to small business concerns

as well as to scientists at research institutions, including colleges

and universities.

The applicant organization must be the small business concern.  At

least 40 percent of the project is to be performed by the small

business concern and at least 30 percent is to be performed by the

research institution.

The STTR program is a three-year pilot program that began in fiscal

year (FY) 1994 and consists of the following three phases;

Phase I:  The objective of this phase is to determine the scientific,

technical, and commercial merit and feasibility of the proposed

cooperative effort and the quality of performance of the small business

concern, prior to providing further Federal support in Phase II.

Phase II:  The objective of this phase is to continue the research or

R&D efforts initiated in Phase I.  Funding shall be based on the

results of Phase I and the scientific and technical merit and

commercial potential of the Phase II application.

Phase III:  The objective of this phase, where appropriate, is to

pursue with non-STTR funds the commercialization of the results of the

research or R&D funded in Phases I and II.

The amount and period of support for STTR awards are as follows:

Phase I:  Awards may not exceed $100,000 for direct costs, indirect

costs, and negotiated fixed fee for a period normally not to exceed one


Phase II:  Awards may not exceed $500,000 for direct costs, indirect

costs, and negotiated fixed fee for a period normally not to exceed two

years, that is, generally, a two-year Phase II project may not cost

more than $500,000 for that project.  A Phase I award must have been

issued in order to apply for a

Phase II award.  (ONLY Phase I awards will be issued in FY 1995.)

It is anticipated that approximately 80 STTR Phase I grants will be

awarded by the NIH in FY 1995 from funds set aside for this purpose.


Eligibility requirements, definitions, application procedures, review

considerations, application forms and instructions, and other pertinent

information are contained in the OMNIBUS SOLICITATION OF THE NATIONAL


GRANT APPLICATIONS.  The Solicitation, which is for the single
