Sponsored Research

ORNL conducts sponsored research with individuals and organizations outside the Lab to accelerate the speed with which ORNL-developed technology goes to market, impacting US competitiveness. We tailor these partnerships and the resulting contractual agreements to fit our partners, who may be other national laboratories, a range of federal entities, industry, or nonprofit organizations, and type of available funding. Our sponsored research programs also provide access to User Facilities and avenues for partnering specifically with small businesses.
