WARWICK - A forum focused on teaching small businesses how to obtain federal funds for innovative research and development projects has been scheduled for Monday, June 25, 2012, from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the Johnson & Wales University’s Culinary Arts Museum, 315 Harborside Blvd., Providence.

Hosted by Rep. James R. Langevin, the Rhode Island Innovation Forum will provide an overview of resources available through the Small Business Innovation Research program.

The event will feature speaker Sean Greene, the associate administrator for investment and special advisor for innovation, and the national SBIR leader.

Working with the Rhode Island Small Business Development Center at Johnson & Wales, the event will also include presentations by Mark Hayward, Rhode Island’s SBA district director, and Christine Smith, director of the Rhode Island Science and Technology Advisory Council.

A discussion session will follow the presentations.

SBIR funding is directed to research and development by small businesses working on scientific and technological advances.

Currently, there are eleven federal agencies, including the Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation, that have SBIR programs.

Over the past four years, Rhode Island companies have received more than 50 SBIR awards worth approximately $20 million.

The event is open to the public, but an RSVP is required. To sign up or request more information, email or call 401-732-9400.
