The FLC Southeast Region is now accepting nominations for its 2018 regional awards program. Each year, the Region awards federal laboratories and their partners for outstanding technology transfer work. Our annual awards program is the perfect vehicle to recognize these efforts, with many of our winners going on to success in the FLC national awards. FLC Southeast Region laboratories have a rich history of creating innovative technologies and establishing partnerships that bring these technologies to market to realize their maximum potential.

Whether your laboratory’s technology transfer success is the result of a massive team effort, or you wish to bring special recognition to an individual who has gone above and beyond the call of duty, there are four FLC Southeast regional awards available for your consideration. 

This year the FLC Southeast Region will accept nominations for awards in the following categories. For complete details and to download individual award forms, click on the award title.
