Early Career Research Program



Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Samll Business Technology Transfer (STTR)

The SBIR and STTR programs are U.S. Government programs, intended to help certain small businesses conduct R&D. At DOE, funding takes the form of grants. Projects must have the potential for commercialization and meet specific DOE mission-specific R&D needs.

DOE offers more than sixty technical topics and 250 subtopics, spanning research areas that support the DOE mission in:

  • Energy Production
  • Energy Use
  • Fundamental Energy Sciences
  • Environmental Management, and
  • Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation

*Select the Office of Isotope R&D and Production, then select Ethan Balkin as program manager. If the Office of Isotope R&D and Production is not available, select the Office of Nuclear Physics, then Ethan Balkin as the program manager.
