Are you an SME?

SBIR is particularly suited to small and medium-sized business, as contracts are of relatively low value and operate in short timescales.

Through SBIR, SMEs can:

  • Compete for each demand driven project in a transparent manner;
  • Demonstrate a route to market for their solution;
  • Focus on specific identified needs, increasing the chance of exploitation as developments are 100% funded;
  • Retain the intellectual property generated from the project (with certain rights of use retained by the contracting department).
