Technology topic

Environmental Technologies (ET)

Environmental Technologies cover a range of innovations focused on sustainability, high commercial impacts and societal and environmental benefits. The topic covers a variety of technology areas of current and emerging commercial significance that improve environmental and or environmental health outcomes. Sensing, data, and advanced analytics technologies relevant to these fields are also appropriate. Please highlight any aspects of the proposed technology or approach that address a problem without a current solution, or one which is underdeveloped.

Subtopics are not aimed at supporting or conducting clinical trials, clinical efficacy or safety studies, the development pre-clinical or clinical-stage drug candidates or medical devices, or work performed primarily for regulatory purposes. Limited studies with human subjects may be acceptable to the extent that they are performed in support of feasibility, such as proof-of-concept studies of early-stage technologies. Proposals that request support for clinical studies will be deemed noncompliant with the SBIR/STTR solicitations and returned without review.
