On January 10 – 12, NASA’s Office of Small Business Programs (OSBP), in collaboration with the Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) and the Office of Education (OE), hosted the NASA Historically Black Colleges and Universities/Minority Serving Institutions (HBCU/MSI) Technology Infusion Road Tour. Together, these three offices provide an open platform for HBCU and MSI representatives to learn about NASA’s Mentor-Protégé Program (MPP), STMD’s Small Business Innovative Research/Small Business Technical Transfer (SBIR/STTR) opportunities, as well as OE’s grant and cooperative agreement opportunities.
