An Assessment of the SBIR Program at the Department of Energy
The board could be assembled on the model of the Defense Science Board (DSB) or perhaps the National Science Foundation’s Advisory Board.38 In any case, it should include senior agency staff and the Director’s Office on an ex officio basis, and bring together, inter alia, representatives from industry (including award recipients), academics, and other experts in program management.
The intent here is to use the DSB or the NSF Board as a model, not something necessarily to be copied exactly.
