About the series
All NSF SBIR/STTR Phase I grantees with awards made on July 1, 2008 are required to attend the Phase I Grantees Workshop scheduled to take place from September 24-25, 2008. STTR grantees are only required to attend the first workshop held during their 12 month grant. The conference program includes a variety of presentations and discussions led by NSF Program Directors and staff and opportunities to meet individually with the awardee's NSF Program Director. The commercialization contractors Dawnbreaker and Development Capital Networks (DCN) will also attend and schedule meetings with interested grantees.
