STTR – Small Business Technology Transfer

  • Hunter College as the Expert in STTR for NYC Health-Tech: One of the key goals of the Center is to become a leader in the NYC Health Tech sector for STTR grants. With an STTR grant, the small business needs a research partner to be the PI for the grant.  STTR is a highly competitive program that reserves a percentage of federal R&D funding for awards to small businesses and Unites States nonprofit research institutions.
  • No Competition: There is currently no institution working at this level on STTR granting in health-tech community
  • NYC Low Application Rate: Currently, NYC Tech sector has a very low application rate for STTR grants. STTR grants allow for a startup health-tech company to formally collaborate with a research institution in Phase I and Phase II of their research.  Compare: Ithaca and NYC have same application rate.
