ORNL Partnerships: Open for Collaboration

Oak Ridge National Laboratory actively seeks and develops industry and technology transfer partnerships that increase the Lab’s economic impact, accelerate deployment of ORNL-developed technologies, and strengthen innovation ecosystems regionally and nationally.

Each year ORNL works with more than 100 companies, and more than 20 startups have been formed based on ORNL-developed technologies over the past 5 years. ORNL maintains membership in consortia, participation in entrepreneurship programs, and active engagement with regional economic development partners. Our partnering mechanisms, which facilitate access to unique Lab facilities, expertise, and intellectual property, are designed to cultivate regional and national innovation, speed Lab-developed technologies to market, and positively impact the economy.

We invite you to explore the opportunities Oak Ridge National Laboratory offers in Technology Transfer, Economic Development, and Sponsored Research. We look forward to partnering with you!
