Meet Karina Edmonds, the new DOE Technology Transfer Coordinator. Edmonds will be responsible for working with the departmentís national laboratories to accelerate the process of moving discoveries from the laboratory to the private sector.
The Technology Transfer Program is coordinated by the Office of Partnerships and Technology Transfer at Fermilab.
Fermilab is a fundamental research laboratory with a well-defined mission in particle physics. Fermilab research does not actively pursue practical applications. Yet the technology developed for the scientific program can lead to important spin-offs. Fermilab has a broad-spectrum program in place to stimulate technology transfer of technologies developed for scientific research. This program includes the Partnerships and Technology Transfer office within the Directorate and a licensing program. Fermilab is also actively involved with state and local activities to foster technology transfer and economic development.
