SBIR Program Small Business Innovation Research

2022 WestEd IES SBIR Proposal Partnerships

WestEd is excited to serve as the research partner to small businesses bidding on SBIR proposals. We offer expertise on creating research plans that provide valuable feedback during the development cycle and meet funder requirements for evidence of usability, feasibility, fidelity, and promise.

We have extensive experience conducting research for small businesses and entrepreneurs in the education technology sector. From 2013-2021, WestEd has served as the research partner for 50+ successful Phase I, Phase II, and FastTrack proposals from the Department of Education (IES), National Science Foundation, and National Institutes of Health.

I'm interested in applying to the SBIRs. What are my next steps?

We anticipate that information for the 2022 IES SBIR round will be released in late 2021 with a proposal due date in December 2021 or January 2022. Keep checking back for more information! Below is information from the 2021 IES SBIR round for your reference.
