Online gallery highlights successful state and local partnerships with federal labs

November 21, 2019

The Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer (FLC) is showcasing a new, online gallery of successful stories of regional value produced when state and local government entities and federal laboratories work together. The State and Local Government T2 Partnerships Gallery features 11 stories from nine states, spotlighting partnerships from nine federal agencies, 12 federal laboratories, and their respective state and local government partners. Each successful collaboration explains the R&D that produced innovative technologies, and how the technologies have benefited local communities and economies nationwide. The stories are available to download and share, and cover topics such as:

  • A multi-agency collaboration with California on tire crumb rubber exposure research;
  • An innovative, federally funded program that supports commercializing defense technology with companies from Maryland’s “Great American Defense Community”; and,
  • A state and federal laboratory partnership formed to mitigate the impact of droughts in California.
