These experienced reviewers will share proposal writing/prep tips and mistakes to avoid, as well as how the review panels work and how they differ from agency to agency.

Moderator Rebecca Todd has also served on SBIR/STTR review panels and will sprinkle in insights from her experience throughout the conversation.
