The FLC Northeast Region is now accepting nominations for its 2017 awards. The regional awards program annually recognizes federal laboratories and their industry partners for outstanding technology transfer efforts in the following categories:
Regional Excellence in Technology Transfer Award – recognizes employees of FLC member laboratories and non-laboratory staff who have accomplished outstanding work in the process of transferring federally developed technology.
Regional Laboratory Award – recognizes extraordinary efforts, which exceed legislated requirements, to further national and regional technology transfer activities.
Regional Appreciation Award–given to any individual who is not a direct employee of a government-owned and -operated (GOGO) or a government-owned contractor-operated (GOCO) organization who has made a significant contribution to the federal technology transfer program. The act, effort, or support must have been for the primary purpose of promoting and/or extending technology transfer from the federal laboratory system to non-federal entities. The individual selected for this award will be the Region's nominee for the national FLC’s Outstanding Service Award.
Regional Coordinator’s Excellence Award – presented to the FLC Laboratory Representative or Alternate in recognition of the individual's significant contribution to the FLC program during the past year. The individual selected will be the Region's nominee for the national FLC’s Representative of the Year Award.
Regional Industry/Non-federal Government/University Award – presented to an American-owned company, a non-federal government entity, or a university within the FLC Northeast Region that has made outstanding efforts to promote either the actual transfer of federal technology transfer or the federal technology transfer program during the 12 months preceding the nomination.
