NSF SBIR/STTR Phase I awards addressing Covid-19
The Division of Innovation and Industrial Partnerships (IIP) of the Engineering Directorate invites US-based small businesses to submit Phase I proposals focused on the development and deployment of new technologies, products, processes, and services with the potential to positively impact the nation’s and world’s ability to respond to the COVID-19 crisis.
Areas of research that might be considered include, but are not limited to: artificial intelligence, digital health, diagnostics, distributed ledger, environmental technologies, medical devices, pharmaceutical technologies, disinfection and sterilization, and filtration and separations. NSF is committed to expediting review, with the hope of awards within six weeks of proposal receipt.

March 6, 2020 – June 4, 2020
June 5, 2020 – September 3, 2020
September 4, 2020 – December 3, 2020
