2017 National Meeting

2017 National Meeting

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 was held in San Antonio, Texas, April 25 - April 27, 2017 at the Omni San Antonio at the Colonnade. The meeting centered 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.
