CSMC Webinar, September 20, 2012.  Judy Giordan moderates. 

Securing government funding is often an instrumental part of translating laboratory and academic research into large scale innovations and independent business ventures.  A staggering amount of money is made available for precisely this purpose and programs addressing a wide variety of research initiatives are launched every year.  Of course, the process begins with identifying the appropriate grant opportunities and tailoring your proposal for maximum effectiveness by highlighting your potential for innovation. 

How should a scientist with an exciting idea begin his or her search for government funding opportunities?  What advice can experts offer on drafting an impactful proposal?  What is the expectation of the role of innovation in large government programs?

Listen to Judy and distinguished panelists Dr. Ilan Gur, Program Director and Senior Advisor for Commercialization, Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E), and Dr. Ben Schrag, Program Director, National Science Foundation (NSF), take live audience questions on ARPA-E, SBIR and other government funding options.
