ATP 2007 Proposers' Conferences
"Shaping the Nation’s Future Technologies"

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) invites interested parties to attend public meetings (Proposers' Conferences) to learn more about the Advanced Technology Program (ATP).

Meeting Date/Locations/

ATP is holding several public meetings (Proposers' Conferences) at several locations around the country. These meetings provide general information regarding the program, tips on preparing proposals, and the opportunity for questions and answers. Proprietary technical or business discussions about specific project ideas with NIST staff are not permitted at these conferences or at any time before submitting the proposal to ATP. Therefore, you should not expect to have proprietary issues addressed at proposers' conferences. NIST/ATP staff will not critique proprietary project ideas while they are being developed by a proposer. However, NIST/ATP staff will, at any time, answer questions that you may have about our project selection criteria, selection process, eligibility requirements, cost-sharing requirements, and the general characteristics of a competitive ATP proposal.
