    Hello
    How particular is NSF on a PI having a Ph.D.?
    For instance, NIH policy states the SBIR does not need to have a PhD but the reality is that the reviewers absolutely want to see a PI with a PhD.

    Similarly, though NSF says the SBIR PI does not need to have a PhD – will the NSF reviewers have the same NIH-reviewers type of expectation of a PI with a Ph.D. ?

    Thanks

    Hi EGC
    Does NSF SBIR permit foreign collaborators or CROs? I know NIH doesnt, but wasn’t sure of NSF.

    Also, does EGC plan to publish a book for preparing NSF grants, and if so, when?

    Thanks

    Hi
    When an employee is part-time, why can’t they be W2 (preferable W2-hourly rather than standard W2)? Are you suggesting part-time employee can only be 1099?

    Thanks

    Hello
    Thank you for your reply. Can you tell me if the Project Pitch can include images/figures or deos it have to be only text? The instructions merely say number of words per section but do not specify if any figures can be included.

    Thanks,
    Shoba

    Hello
    Thanks for all the helpful replies. It appears that STTR rules are different for NSF vs. NIH.

    1) Unlike NIH STTR, it appears the NSF STTR PI cannot be a university professor – am I correct? The NSF STTR PI has to be an employee of the smallbiz. A senior university prof will not do that. Then would the uni prof be a Co-I or an additional PI ?

    2) Does NSF allow additional investigators to create a solid team? The solicitation is confusing. It only talks about a PI with no mention of Co-Investigators, etc. How does one show a ‘team’ with just 1 PI?

    3) NSF STTR allows only 50% for the university (vs 60% in NIH STTR) – am I correct?

    Thanks

    Hello – I’m following up on the May 1st message exchange above. I’m still trying to understand how NSF proposals would be written differently from an NIH proposal given that both are so similar. For example, if one was to write a proposal for a novel point of care device for molecular diagnostics, what would one emphasize in an NSF proposal vs. an NIH proposal?

    It sounds like both NSF & NIH accept engineering improvements and testing the device with clinical samples, which implies that essentially the same proposal would be submitted to both agencies (apart from the different app formats of course). How would this be presented to NSF vs NIH?

    Thanks for your advice.
