New Partnering Service Opens Up Access to National Laboratories
The Department of Energy (DOE) recently announced the launch of its new Lab Partnering Service (LPS). This new service provides a centralized platform for investors and all other parties interested in furthering energy innovation to connect with DOE national laboratory technical experts and connect with one another to forge partnerships. The overall aim of the LPS is to facilitate access to information for those with the power to make informed decisions and effect change.
Through the LPS, interested parties have direct access to the knowledge and skills bases of each of the 17 national laboratories. To access these resources, users simply submit an inquiry which can be sent to the technology transfer office of any of the labs.
The LPS is comprised of three primary components aimed at encouraging partnership with national labs:
- Expert Search: provides customers direct access to national lab experts.
- Technical Summaries: provide information about technologies associated patents, patent applications, and publications from DOE’s national laboratories and other participating research institutions available for licensing.
- Visual Patent Search: enables a unique, visually-facilitated search of the patent content contained in the Lab Partnering Service.
