New Jersey

In 2017, New Jersey-based federal agencies and laboratories received a federal R&D investment of $1.9 billion. They leveraged that investment via their technology transfer efforts to address societal needs, promote economic development and growth, and enhance U.S. competitiveness. From defense to life sciences to energy to agriculture, New Jersey-based federal agencies and labs are meeting the technology transfer mission envisioned by Congress.
