DOE Lab Partnering Service portal

Energy launches tech transfer portal

To help investors, innovators and research institutions find information on technology created at any of Department of Energy's 17 national laboratories, DOE has launched the Lab Partnering Service, a suite of online applications enabling access to leading experts, projects and patents from across the department.

The LPS has three parts:

Expert Search connects users to experts from the DOE’s national laboratories. Experts can be filtered by "hot" tech market sector  -- advanced materials to unmanned systems – and by subspecialty, such as modeling, security or sensors. Users can click on an expert's name, fill in a form asking a question and expect a reply in 14 days.

Lab Partnering describes the available partnering mechanisms, such as Cooperative Research and Development Agreements and agreements for licensing intellectual property.

Technical Summaries provide information about the DOE-developed technologies, associated patents available for licensing. A visual patent search enables a unique, visually facilitated search of published US patent applications and issued U.S. patents resulting from DOE-funded R&D.

“The launch of the Lab Partnering Service represents a big step in reducing barriers that often limit energy investors from partnering with our National Labs,” Secretary of Energy Rick Perry said. “The LPS consolidates information and capabilities at the National Labs to increase public access, allowing industry and academia to fully utilize these vital scientific resources.”
