Partnership Pays: Building a Relationship with ARS to Enhance Your USDA SBIR Proposal

USDA ARS and the USDA SBIR program formed a partnership to encourage USDA SBIR applicants to develop research collaborations with ARS scientists and/or to license ARS technologies. The purpose is to increase the likelihood of success by providing both money and technologies to small U.S. businesses. The relevant language in the SBIR’s “Request for Application” states: "Additional factors that will be considered in the review process include whether an application involves a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with a USDA laboratory, or a license to a USDA technology, or is a resubmission.”

This webinar will include an overview of the USDA SBIR program and crafting a competitive SBIR proposal. Also an overview of ARS and how to develop a successful research collaboration (CRADA) with an ARS scientist and/or license an ARS technology will be discussed. The webinar will address coordinating the statement of works in an ARS CRADA and a USDA SBIR proposal.

WIB-National Webinar "Risky Business: Mitigating Risk in the Life Sciences,"

All projects present risk, and successful project managers recognize that it is vital not to avoid risks, but to understand them. Risk management is the process of identifying, assessing, mitigating, and controlling the known risks in order to increase the probability of meeting your project objectives. By planning for unexpected events, you can be ready to respond if they arise. This webinar will be led by Gretchen Stup, Senior Consultant, Latham BioPharm Group, and will bring to light the importance of Risk Management as well as introduce methods and tools that can be implemented to ensure a successful risk management process. Gretchen will utilize a slide presentation and will review specific examples to help illustrate the key concepts of Risk Management. The presentation will help you understand how to identify what can go wrong, how to assess a risk events probability and impact, and what to do to lessen the probability or impact of a risk event occurring. Real-world examples and considerations from the speaker’s professional experience will be highlighted during the webinar. In addition, there will be time allotted for questions and answers at the conclusion of the webinar.

This course will result in up to one hour of PMI-approvable Professional Development Units (PDUs) for the project management field.
