Southeast Region

The FLC Southeast Region is comprised of the following nine states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. The FLC Southeast Region is home to over 40 federal laboratories and over 300 federal facilities of the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, and Energy; the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), among others.

Whether focusing on strengthening national security, improving medical treatments and the quality of life, or creating technologies to benefit the warfighter, the Southeast Region’s network of federal laboratories and their technology transfer offices are aiding efforts to fuel our nation’s economic competitiveness.

The mission of the FLC is to add value to the federal agencies, laboratories, and their partners to accomplish the rapid integration of research and development resources within the mainstream of the U.S. economy. Each Region actively conducts R&D activities seeking partnerships to transfer innovative technologies.

The Mid-Continent Region actively promotes regional tech transfer through its Lab Showcase, Member Connect, Industry and Tech Events, and so much more. Check out our professional development and networking events, as well as our regional award winners that demonstrate outstanding technology transfer programs.
