Collaborative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs)

Are you a small business that specializes in research and development?

In addition to providing competitive subcontracting opportunities, MIT LL seeks to collaborate and participate in technology transfer with small R&D businesses by means of Collaborative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs).  Facilitated by a CRADA, your small R&D business may be eligible to partner directly with MIT LL experts on R&D projects and participate in subsequent technology transfer direct to industry.

If you are interested in hearing more about CRADA opportunities with MIT LL, or simply looking for more information, we invite you to review our external website to discover areas of expertise where your business may be able to provide benefits from collaborative effort.

Similarly, MITLL also participates in Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) and Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) programs provided by the Federal Government.

So whatever your stage in business, if you believe that MIT LL can help you explore your company’s technological potential and can assist in providing the research and development guidance essential for realizing both commercial and scientific success, please reach out to our MIT LL Small Business Office at to inquire about further opportunities.
