Partnering with Jefferson Lab

Jefferson Lab uses a number of partnering mechanisms including Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs), Strategic Partnership Projects, Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) projects.  The Lab can also accommodate proprietary research.

Jefferson Lab has a number of inventions in various stages of patenting that are available for commercialization through license agreements with the lab. Any organization interested in licensing technology developed by JLab is required to complete a Jefferson Lab Non-Disclosure Form, after which, more relevant information will be provided. To initiate the licensing process, the interested organization must submit a License and Commercialization Plan for review and evaluation.

Any institution interested in exploring partnership with JLab on patented technologies, should submit a Licensing Form to initiate the process.

A recent Industry Day highlighted a new Jefferson Lab licensing opportunity with the potential to address environmental challenges including the storage and treatment of oil sands process water, hydraulic fracturing process fluids, flue-gas, fracking overflow, wastewater treatment, coal-fired power plant effluent, environmental remediation, and sterilization. If you are interested in this technology, contact dowd@jlab.org or submit a licensing form. This licensing opportunity is scheduled to close on February 28, 2019.
