There are six SBIR online training modules offered at http://www.sbirtraining.com/. The goal of SBIRTraining.com is to provide information needed to become educated about the SBIR program. SBIR videos, webinars, agency overviews and links to agency specific SBIR details are available here.
There are national and regional conferences hosted throughout the year in various locations in the U.S. These events are important for small businesses participating, or wanting to participate, in the SBIR program.
