Are you interested in collaborating with world class federal laboratories to learn how to commercialize innovative government technologies? Federal technology transfer, the process of commercializing STEM-based products and services born in government labs, is your key to innovation success!

Each year the Federal Government spends more than $147 billion on research and development (R&D); historically, this R&D has produced leading innovations, including many that we see today such as the Global Positioning Systems (GPS), Apple’s Siri, and even the camera in your cell phone. 

With access to expert government scientists, facilities and equipment, businesses can work directly with technology transfer professionals to take advantage of pioneering technological breakthroughs that are shaping the new innovation economy in the United States.

This introductory webinar will serve as the first of a three-part Technology Transfer series co-hosted by the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) and the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to introduce participants to the exciting world of Technology Transfer and Commercialization. Technology transfer experts will provide valuable information about how to create official agreements to help you develop partnership with a specific federal lab so you can succeed at your technology commercialization goals.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: This conversation is designed for minority-owned businesses, Minority-Serving Institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities and private sector experts who are new to this field and will provide attendees with an introduction to the basics of federal technology transfer and its benefits.
