SBA announces dates for annual innovation conference

The event will be held June 20 and 21 as part of the "TechConnect World Innovation Conference and Expo."

The U.S. Small Business Administration has announced that its annual “SBIR/STTR Innovation Conference” will again be held in conjunction with the “TechConnect World Innovation Conference and Expo” on June 19-21 at the Gaylord National Harbor Hotel in Washington, DC.

For more than 20 years, the latter event has connected top applied research and early-stage innovations from universities, labs, and start-ups with industry end-users and prospectors. In addition to the “SBIR/STTR Innovation Conference,” the “TechConnect World Innovation” event also includes “AI TechConnect,” “TechConnect Technical Program,” and the Nanotech Conference Series – the world’s largest and longest-running nanotechnology event.

Through these joint programs, TechConnect has published more than 10,000 technical papers, connected over 20,000 innovations with industry partners, provided prospecting to almost all Fortune 500 technology companies, and supported almost every U.S. science and technology agency since its inception including the National Nanotechnology Initiative.
