Technology Transfer Liaison Program

Tech Transfer Liaisons

Successful technology commercialization programs depend on close collaborations with researchers. To increase researcher engagement in technology transfer, ORNL led a team of 11 DOE national laboratories in launching the Technology Transfer Liaison program.

In 2024, ORNL’s team was recognized with a Technology Transfer Innovation Award from the Federal Laboratory Consortium for this project.

Liaisons are recruited and trained to be embedded technology scouts, subject matter experts, and ambassadors to their technology transfer offices.
