The Dissemination Program strives to provide funding opportunities to support dissemination efforts, as well as provide training and education resources for innovators to learn what is required to successfully develop a technology from invention to product, for broad dissemination.
The following funding opportunities support efforts to disseminate resources and to integrate them into neuroscience research practice.
- Administrative Supplements for BRAIN Initiative Awardees to Support Resource Dissemination
- NIH SBIR/STTR Program
- Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Translation of BRAIN Initiative Technologies to the Marketplace
- U24 - BRAIN Initiative Research Resource Grants for Technology Integration and Dissemination

The following links provide information on different dissemination training and education resources for innovators.
Concept to Clinic: Commercializing Innovation (C3i) Program
The C3i Program is designed to provide medical device innovators with the specialized business frameworks and essential tools for successful translation of biomedical technologies from the lab (concept) to the market (clinic).
I-Corps™ at NIH
The I-Corps at NIH program is focused on educating researchers and technologists on how to translate technologies from the lab into the marketplace. The program provides three-member project teams with access to instruction and mentoring in order to accelerate the translation of technologies currently being developed with NIH and CDC SBIR and STTR funding.
