The U.S. has 17 National Laboratories that conduct a significant amount of research and development projects with universities. Each laboratory and each project must operate under specific agreement types and terms — some of which are negotiable and some that are set in stone due to federal regulations.

Whether your university is seeking to jointly conduct research, contract for use of space and expertise, or enter into a strategic partnership, Federal Labs are primed with a myriad of options at the ready. However, there are significant differences between how National Labs and universities are governed, operate, and function.

Understanding these differences — and the regulations that affect them — is key to a successful working relationship. Tech Transfer Central has partnered with Jason Stolworthy, JD, Director of Technology Deployment with the Idaho National Laboratory, to bring you this insightful webinar: Working with Federal Laboratories: Best Practices for University-Based Technology Transfer and Licensing Professionals, scheduled for March 19.

We’ll focus on the similarities and differences in university and federal lab research, flexibilities and limitations in negotiating IP, and other best practices on how to engage effectively with a National Laboratory.
