Midwest

The Midwest Region is comprised of six states with more than 30 laboratories and over 150 facilities that conduct federal research and development in a wide range of topics. From the examination of the smallest particles in the universe to the development of new engine lubricants to alternative manufacturing processes, each facility in the Midwest Region is involved in expanding the bounds of knowledge and our nation's technical capabilities.

The FLC Midwest Region's mission is to link government scientists with each other and with appropriate commercial, industrial, and academic partners so technologies developed in federal laboratories may be widely disseminated throughout the region, the nation, and the world. It accomplishes this mission through outreach at conferences and visits to the laboratories; Midwest Region email, website, and social media communication; the publication of informational brochures and a quarterly newsletter; and the development of training materials for three distinct groups of people: private-sector partners, government scientists, and technology transfer professionals.
