The FLC national meeting is one of the most anticipated annual events in the technology transfer community that offers both training and networking opportunities designed to facilitate attendees’ commercialization endeavors. This year's national meeting will be held in San Antonio, Texas, April 25 – April 27, 2017 at the Omni San Antonio Hotel at the Colonnade . The meeting will center on our nation’s continued focus to move federal research and development from out of the lab and into the marketplace by strengthening relationships with the private sector.

The educational training sessions, experiential panels, and networking opportunities offered at the national meeting are a culmination of the FLC’s steadfast efforts to promote, educate, and facilitate technology transfer for the more than 300 federal laboratories, research centers and parent agencies that encompass its diverse network. The knowledge gained from this year’s national meeting will help technology transfer professionals to improve upon their laboratory’s technology marketing strategies, as well as initiate the building of interagency and industry partnerships that can advance our nation’s commercialization success.
