NIH Announces Manufacturing Assistance Program (MAP) for Its Phase II SBIR Awardees
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced the availability of a Manufacturing Assistance Program (MAP) for its Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II awardees from 2003 to the present. We want to be sure that you are aware of this opportunity. This new program is designed to help SBIR awardees identify, address, and develop a strategy to overcome the manufacturing issues related to the commercialization of their SBIR-developed products. (NOTE: This program is not available to Small Business Technology Transfer [STTR] awardees.) Applications are due February 14, 2008; however, if you're interested, act quickly as the first 30 applications received will be considered for the 25 slots that are available.
Review the NIH Guide Notice NOT-OD-08-025 (released Dec. 28, 2007) for the program's full description and the application form.
