Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
If you or your company are developing a medical countermeasure or platform technology to combat chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear threats, pandemic influenza or other emerging infectious diseases, you can get insights and strategic advice from HHS/ASPR Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) at a TechWatch meeting.
BARDA TechWatch meetings are your chance to introduce your proposed solution that may meet one or more of BARDA’s current priorities, and are the beginning of an important dialogue.
Participation in the TechWatch program affords companies an opportunity to present their capabilities to experts at BARDA. During the meeting, these experts may:
A BARDA TechWatch meeting may also include professionals from other government agencies with related portfolios, such as the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Department of Defense, or the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Before you meet with us, take some time to prepare for your meeting. Here are 5 things you can do to make the most of your TechWatch meeting.
Complete a TechWatch Meeting before Responding to the BARDA BAA Offerors are strongly encouraged to participate in the TechWatch program prior to any White Paper or Full Proposal submissions under the BARDA Broad Agency Announcement (BAA).
Companies who participate in a TechWatch meeting prior to responding to the BARDA BAA have a better understanding of BARDA’s priorities and are able to benefit from the strategies and other information discussed during the TechWatch meeting. Ultimately, companies or organizations that complete a TechWatch meeting are more likely to have a successful White Paper submission.
Entities with a White Paper or proposal currently under review for any ASPR solicitation are not eligible to schedule a TechWatch meeting related to that submission.
Requesting a BARDA TechWatch meeting is easy, just register via MedicalCountermeasures.gov and provide some basic information on the product that you are developing, including the threat agent or area you are addressing and the Technology Readiness Level, and the persons who will be attending the meeting from your company or organization.
