NIST, on behalf of the Federal Laboratory Consortium (FLC) Executive Board, is soliciting applications for a cooperative agreement to enable Federal technology transfer.
Under the Enabling Federal Technology Transfer (EFTT) Program, members of the FLC's Executive Board, including NIST, will
collaborate with academia and industry on the development of outreach and educational programs, tools, and best practices that will enhance the ability of the academic and private sectors to engage with Federal Laboratories in technology transfer and research commercialization.
Specifically, the awardee will collaborate with the Federal Laboratory Consortium's Executive Board, including NIST, in the areas of technology transfer and research commercialization by:
developing the necessary tools and services to promote the utilization of Federal intellectual property, user facilities, and other R&D resources by non-Federal partners; creating a suitable education and training infrastructure in technology transfer for the relevant stakeholders; and engaging the industry, academic, and state and local government communities to facilitate access to Federal R&D collaborations and Federal technology transfer opportunities on both a regional and a national level.
