ORNL Partnerships: Open for Collaboration

Through strategic partnership, technology commercialization, and entrepreneurship, Oak Ridge National Laboratory is driving innovation-based economic growth and opportunity in our nation, region, and community through scientific advances in energy, environment, and security. 

The depth and breadth of ORNL’s wide-ranging, world-leading expertise and facilities are unparalleled and provide a competitive advantage to our partners. We recognize and value how partnering with business incubators, innovative startups, local firms, industry giants, government agencies, and colleges and universities amplifies and extends the impact of our work.

We are committed to engaging disadvantaged communities and to ensuring equity, diversity, and inclusion in our economic development and technology transfer programs.

Through our work to move new technologies to market, we're building supportive and resilient ecosystems in the Oak Ridge-Knoxville area, in Tennessee, and in the United States. We look forward to partnering with you.
