SCRA Applied R&D recently secured $857,394 to provide program management support for the Navy Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer programs.
Small Business Innovation Research is a competitive program that provides awards to domestic small businesses, enabling them to engage in federally funded research or research and development, with the plan to commercialize their technologies and innovations.
The Small Business Technology Transfer program expands funding opportunities in the federal innovation research and development arena. Small businesses are required to collaborate with a research institution as part of the program.
“Throughout our three business sectors, SCRA has helped take high-tech innovations out of the lab and into the commercial marketplace, and this Navy award builds on our expertise in the technology implementation arena,” SCRA Applied R&D President Chris Van Metre said in a statement.
Arlington, Va.-based Engineering Services Network Inc. made the task order award. The program is sponsored by the Office of Naval Research.
Charleston-based SCRA is an applied research corporation with three sectors: technology ventures, applied R&D and R&D facilities.
