The Commission on Science, Innovation and Technology (CSIT) will host two informational webinars to outline several programs that are aimed to support innovative, early-stage, and clean teach startups across the state.


The first webinar will provide an overview of CSIT’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Direct Financial Assistance Program Pilot, which enhances New Jersey’s innovation economy by providing technical and financial support to small businesses seeking to or participating in the federal SBIR/STTR program. The next round of the program will open in the coming weeks and will offer $25,000 and $50,000 grants.

The second webinar will highlight new rounds of funding available from CSIT’s Research and Development Voucher Programs. The Catalyst R&D Voucher Program helps offset the cost of leveraging R&D resources, facilities, and equipment at the state’s academic universities and colleges, federal, and non-profit laboratories to advance their technology development. The Clean Tech R&D Voucher Program supports early-stage clean tech companies access core facilities, equipment, and makerspaces at any participating state universities or government labs.
