The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) invites small businesses to submit Phase I research applications under this Federal Funding Opportunity (FFO). Firms with strong research capabilities in any of the areas listed in Section 9 of the Full Announcement/ FFO document are encouraged to participate. Applications not addressing one of the subtopics in Section 9 are not responsive to this FFO. The NIST FY 2015 SBIR program identifies and solicits applications in subtopics that fall within NIST’s mission and allow collaboration between NIST scientists and the SBIR awardees whenever possible. In order to ensure a greater strategic alignment between the NIST SBIR program and our laboratory research program, the SBIR topics are the priority areas identified in the NIST Programmatic Plan available at: http://www.nist.gov/director/planning/planning.cfm.
