Funding Greentech Innovation
Not a direct part of the economic stimulus package, and only extended by Congress (as of March 20th) for another 60 days, a significant source of funding for primary research by startup greentech companies has been from the EPA's National Center for Environmental Research (es.epa.gov/ncer/) which manages the funding of the SBIR - Small Business Innovation Research program, and STTR - Small Business Technology Transfer program. Both SBIR and STTR monies are channeled through as many as 12 other federal agencies.
The 2010 EPA-SBIR Broad Area Topics are: Green Building Materials and Systems, Innovation in Manufacturing, Nanotechnology, Greenhouse Gases, Drinking Water and Water Monitoring, Water Infrastructure, Air Pollution, Biofuels and Vehicle Emissions Reduction, Waste Management and Monitoring, Homeland Security.
The 2010 NSF Broad Area Topics are: Biotech and Chemical Technologies (BC); Education Applications (EA); Information and Communication Technologies (IC) and Nanotechnology, Advanced Materials and Manufacturing (NM).
