Products to Support Applied Research Towards Zero Suicide Healthcare Systems (R43/R44 C... - 0 views

  •  
    This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is intended to support Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants that develop novel technologies for the purpose of advancing the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention's "Zero Suicide" goal of preventing suicide events (attempts, deaths) among individuals receiving treatment within health care systems. Zero Suicide is a commitment to the prevention of suicide among individuals served by health care systems and is also a specific set of health care strategies and tools intended to eliminate suicide events. Research is still needed, however, to implement these goals effectively, and the incorporation of health information technology (health IT) products into this care program is critical. As such, this FOA specifically supports SBIR grants to develop technologies that enable healthcare settings to improve the development, management and/or delivery of services under the Zero Suicide framework.

Global Operational Tactical Information Technology (GOT-IT) - Federal Business Opportun... - 0 views

  •  
    The Information Directorate of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL/RI), Rome Research Site, is soliciting white papers under this announcement for innovative technologies to enable the effective management of information for military operations.

    Focus: The objective of this BAA is to develop and demonstrate middleware to bridge the tactical and enterprise domains, realizing decentralized IM services built upon client-based protocols for use at the tactical edge that can coexist and interoperate securely with the server-based IM services that are well-suited for deployment in enterprise-scale environments. To improve the exchange of information between enterprise and the tactical edge networks and applications, these services need to be capable of operating in contested/congested environments and be built upon disruption and fault tolerant techniques and technologies.

    The research and development to be conducted under this BAA is focused on the following:

    1) Interoperable hybrid centralized & decentralized IM services designed for mobile operations.
    2) Gateways for the exchange of heterogeneous information across disparate networks.
    3) Disruption tolerant information preservation, optimized delivery, and synchronization.
    4) Demonstration of the utility of these capabilities in operationally relevant environments.

Small Business Innovation Research Program Phase I - 0 views

  •  
    The SBIR program is Congressionally mandated and intended to support scientific excellence and technological innovation through the investment of federal research funds to build a strong national economy by stimulating technological innovation in the private sector; strengthening the role of small business in meeting federal research and development needs; increasing the commercial application of federally supported research results; and fostering and encouraging participation by socially and economically disadvantaged and women-owned small businesses.
    The SBIR program at NSF solicits proposals from the small business sector consistent with NSF's mission to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; and to secure the national defense. A main purpose of the legislation is to stimulate technological innovation and increase private sector commercialization. The NSF SBIR/STTR program is therefore in a unique position to meet both the goals of NSF and the purpose of the SBIR/STTR legislation by transforming scientific discovery and innovation into both social and economic benefit, and by emphasizing private sector commercialization.

  •  
    This notice announces the availability of funds and solicits proposals from eligible entities that can provide planning, hosting and training conference facilitation support for the nation-wide State Small Business Ombudsman (SBO)/Small Business Environmental Assistance Providers' (SBEAP) 507 Program, a regulatory compliance assistance program created under section 507 of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments. The state compliance assistance 507 Programs, which are dispersed throughout the U.S. states and trust territories, often partner together to share ideas, resources and support small business assistance on a national level. Typically, their partnership efforts include communication, distributing and exchanging of information on compliance assistance and program activities, as well as locating environmental compliance and sustainability information focused on small business. In order to sustain the states' partnership and sharing of resources, the state 507 Program staff members meet in person on an annual basis. Funding under this announcement will be used for planning, hosting and facilitation activities that support this nation-wide 507 Program Training Conference on a biannual basis only. The goal of this co-sponsorship agreement is to provide state and trust territory SBO and SBEAP staff, as well as the small business community that are required to comply with environmental regulations, with support in regulatory compliance training and resource development through a biannual event, where each can access environmental regulatory/technical training and information, resources, small business content or activities; all which help this nation-wide program stay connected and provide well rounded environmental compliance assistance to the small business community and public overall.
