For small businesses participating in the federal government’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) or Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs, understanding intellectual property (IP)—including patents, trade secrets, trademarks, and copyrights—is necessary to protect your ideas, products, and product names in today’s knowledge economy. This series of seven 90-minute webinars, organized by the USPTO and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), has been designed to specifically address the most common IP issues facing small businesses funded by the SBIR and STTR programs. They not only cover all aspects of IP protection, but will also help you understand your IP data rights under the SBIR/STTR grant or contract.

Webinars are 90 minutes and start at 12 p.m. Eastern time. Space is limited, so please register early.

Please note these webinars are open only to small businesses engaged in either Phase 1 or Phase 2 of the SBIR/STTR programs.
