Overview: The National Science Foundation (NSF) Directorate for Engineering supports frontier research and education across all fields of engineering. The Directorate also supports academic research with industrial partners through its centers programs, and is home to NSF's two federal small business research programs: the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program and the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program. These investments advance innovation by leveraging findings from academic research and building collaborations with the goal of commercializing new technologies.
