Federal Laboratory Consortium launches tech transfer tool
A new website has launched to help U.S. industry understand the capabilities and availability of resources at federal government laboratories and their many potential partnership opportunities.
Developed by the Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer (FLC), FLCBusiness provides a searchable database of federal lab capabilities and know-how, facilities and equipment available for public and private utilization, lab-specific programs and funding opportunities.
FLCBusiness was created to advance technology transfer (T2) and help commercialize federal research in order to support higher-growth for American businesses.
With the cooperation of federal labs across the country providing their leading-edge resources, any business will now have the ability to “one-stop shop” along the avenue of innovation, FLC said in its announcement.
“By housing all of this information on one dynamic site, the FLC is able to further its mission to bolster T2 and assist with the advancement of U.S. industry,” said FLC chair Paul Zielinski.
