The Optical Society (OSA) will host a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) funding accelerator event on 02 November 2015. This meeting will bring together industry entrepreneurs and government agencies with the purpose of directing the development and funding of new advancements in photonics. SBIR programs are the U.S. government’s largest source of early stage research and development (R&D) funding for small business. During this meeting, members of The Optical Society will learn how to participate in and compete for funding and engage in Federal R&D programs and to commercialize photonics innovations. SBIR events, like this one, are a coveted opportunity for those involved in the advanced technology communities, including women- and minority-owned firms.
