The U.S. Department of Education (ED) anticipates the release of the 2013 Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR) Phase I solicitation on or about December 17, 2012.


The purpose of the SBIR program is to stimulate technological innovation in the private sector, strengthen the role of small business in meeting ED research and development needs, increase the commercial potential of ED-supported research results, and improve the return on investment from Federally-funded research for economic and social benefits to the Nation.


Phase I is to determine, insofar as possible, the scientific or technical merit of ideas submitted under the SBIR program. The proposal should concentrate on Research/Research & Development (R/R&D) that will establish the feasibility of the technological approach, a prerequisite for further ED support in Phase II. Awards are for periods up to 6-months in amounts up to $150,000.


Firms with strong R/R&D capabilities in education technology in the priority areas listed are encouraged to participate. The 2013 priority areas consist of either (1) R/R&D of products used by students or teachers (or other instructional personnel) or (2) R/R&D of education technology products for use by infants, toddlers, or students with or at risk for disabilities, or teachers (or other instructional personnel, related services providers, or family members) in early intervention or special education. Products must fall in one of these two priority areas (not both).


This notice is not a request for proposal.
