The Neutrino Donut – NIH Technical Assistance Programs – Transition to Phase III

NIH SBIR/STTR Niche Assessment Program (NAP), I-Corps at NIH, and NIH SBIR/STTR Commercialization Accelerator Program (CAP).

A cornerstone of the SBIR and STTR programs is helping companies move along the path of commercialization, with an emphasis on reducing technology risk and increasing the value proposition. HHS offers the I-Corps TM at NIH program and the Niche Assessment Program for Phase I awardees, and the Commercialization Accelerator Program (CAP) for Phase II awardees.

Technologies supported by these programs include a range of drug, device, diagnostic or behavioral interventions.

The Neutrino Donut – Grant Programs – How to Commercialize

This is where grant applicants have problems. They do not understand the process of taking their science into the marketplace. Issues such as product definition, pricing, scaling, customer identification, sales process, all are key topics for consideration. This is also where grant applications fail.
