A full-day workshop on submitting proposals for Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer grants will begin at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, July 15.

The workshop, held by the Economic Development Partnership of Alabama and the UA Office of Technology Transfer, will be in Rast Room A of the Bryant Conference Center.

Jennifer Braxton, senior project director at Alabama Launchpad, said the workshops go hand-in-hand with Alabama Launchpad, which helps small business owners access some of the $40 million in federal grants that Alabama receives.

“We like to partner with [the University] because some of the [grant] applicants are coming from the University,” she said.
