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.
