Research-based companies with technologies that have educational applications are invited to explore the Department of Education’s SBIR pre-solicitation announcement and research topics. ED has two upcoming SBIR solicitations – one regular Phase I and the other a Fast Track (combined Phase I and II) – with anticipated release dates on or about Dec. 1, with projected due dates of Jan. 15.

The two ED solicitations share the same following research topics:

  1. Education Technology Products Used by Students or Teachers (or other Instructional Personnel) in Authentic Education Settings
  2. Education Technology Products Used by Infants, Toddlers, or Students With or At Risk for Disabilities, or Teachers (or other Instructional Personnel, Related Services Providers, or Family Members) in Early Intervention or Special Education Settings.
