Technology transfer is critical to research and development efforts at NETL and across the country, as it ensures that emerging innovations move from the laboratory to the marketplace for the greatest impact. Partnerships with businesses, entrepreneurs, universities and others facilitate technology transfer by bridging the gap between research and commercialization. The necessity for collaboration puts NETL in a key position within the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Lab Partnering Service (LPS). Launched in July 2018, LPS helps potential investors/partners navigate the vast economic opportunities within the DOE complex by providing a single online access point for information from all 20 national labs and facilities. The LPS website enables users to connect with technology experts at relevant DOE national labs and facilities, learn about partnership possibilities and search technologies and patents available for licensing. Inquiries are routed to each lab’s Technology Transfer Office, which assists in answering questions and/or directing them to the appropriate individual within the DOE laboratory system.
