Chapter 13: Public/private technology partnerships: evaluating SBIR-supported research
This paper evaluates public support of private-sector research and development (R & D) through the Department of Defense’s (DoD’s), Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program. Based on alternative evaluation methods applicable to survey data and case studies, we conclude that there is ample evidence that the DoD’s SBIR Program is stimulating R & D as well as efforts to commercialize that would not otherwise have taken place. Further, the evidence shows the SBIR R & D does lead to commercialization, and the net social benefits associated with the program’s sponsored research are substantial.
