2017 FLC National Meeting

The 2017 FLC national meeting took place April 25 – 27 in San Antonio, Texas at the Omni San Antonio Hotel at the Colonnade. We kicked up the dust on current T2 practices and wrangled disruptive technologies for market impact! The meeting theme centered on our nation’s continued focus to move federal R&D out of the lab and into the marketplace by strengthening relationships with the private sector.
