NIST funds industrial and academic research in a variety of ways. Our Advanced Technology Program co-funds high-risk, high-payoff projects with industry. The Small Business Innovation Research Program funds R&D; proposals from small businesses. We also offer other grants to encourage work in specific fields: precision measurement, fire research, and materials science.

Grants/awards supporting research at industry, academic, and other institutions are available on a competitive basis through several different Institute offices. For general information on NIST grants programs, contact Joyce Brigham, (301) 975-6329.
