The FLC Northeast, NIST, and local partners are joining forces with the SBIR Road Tour and heading down to San Juan, Puerto Rico for two days devoted to Federal opportunities!  On Thursday November 14th, agency representatives from across the federal laboratory sector, including the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Energy, Health and Human Services, Transportation, Veterans Affairs, as well as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and others, will share the opportunities for collaborations with the federal government for companies of all sizes and across industrial sectors.  The event will include an introduction from the Federal Laboratory Consortium, and panels highlighting both Federal and regional resources.  Following the talks, companies will be given an opportunity to sign up for 1-on-1 meetings with the representatives for company specific information and discussions. The SBA’s SBIR Road Tour Stop will occur in the same venue on Friday, November 15th.

Please join us as we help ensure Puerto Rico is the “main technological innovation center in the Caribbean and Latin America.”

SBIR Road Tour information and registration can be found here.
