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.
