Northeast

The FLC’s Northeast Region consists of all of the New England states, New York, New Jersey, and Puerto Rico, with approximately 35 member research and development (R&D) laboratories. These laboratories represent a variety of agencies (i.e., Departments of Commerce, Energy, Defense, Transportation, etc.). The mission of the FLC is to add value to the federal agencies, laboratories, and their partners to accomplish the rapid integration of research and development resources within the mainstream of the U.S. economy.
