OSA Headquarters, Washington, DC USA
 

The OIDA Funding Accelerator Speed Meetings: SBIR/STTR focusing on optics and photonics funding, will be held in Washington, DC on Tuesday, 14 November 2017. This event will give U.S. companies with less than 500 employees an opportunity to meet one-on-one with program officers from multiple U.S. federal agencies, all in one place, in one day - minimizing your time investment and increasing your chances for new government funding. 

This OIDA event will give you an insider perspective on what agencies are looking to fund; as well as provide you with up-to-date information on each agency's SBIR/STTR funding process, and how you can enhance your probability of success. In addition, the event will help government agencies better understand what OSA Industry Development Associates (OIDA) members can offer and how the optics and photonics technologies can help them meet their goals. 

This event is exclusive to OIDA Members. For more information and to secure your company's reservation, please e-mail OSA Director of Corporate Membership, Andrew Dougherty at adougherty@osa.org to RSVP.
