NAVSEA SBIR / STTR Topics Workshop 2020

December 2, 2020 - December 3, 2020

Engage Directly with SBIR Program Managers About Current Open SBIR Solicitations

The NAVSEA SBIR/STTR Topics Workshop is an annual event bringing together small business innovators and SBIR Program Managers from NAVSEA, NAVAIR, and DHS to connect and discuss open SBIR/STTR Topics from the 2021.1 solicitation. This event is a great way for small businesses at every stage of maturity to learn directly from Federal Program Managers about how to effectively engage in the SBIR/STTR program to deliver innovative technologies to the United States Navy and Department of Homeland Security.

This year’s event marks the 6th year of the NAVSEA SBIR/STTR Topics Workshop. While we are not able to connect in person this year, we are pleased to be presenting this event as a fully virtual two-day experience. The first day will feature keynotes from government leadership and reviews of NAVSEA, NAVAIR, and DHS SBIR/STTR topics in the Broad Agency Announcement pre-release. The second day will be devoted to one-on-one matchmaking with SBIR Program Managers and Defense Prime Contractors.

This year, due to the virtual nature of the event, we are pleased to announce the registration for this event is free to all attendees.
