From disease-resistant tilapia to brighter electronic device screens to training for bomb-sniffing dogs, Labs in Action stories underscore the active nature of technology transfer. Federal labs take action to identify a need, develop a technology to address that need, and establish partnerships to drive those innovations to the marketplace where they can benefit society, the economy or national security.
Like LabTech in Your Life, the Labs in Action gallery showcases examples of federal tech transfer successes that will resonate with non-experts—real-world stories of how technologies developed by federal labs are helping to solve problems faced in everyday life.
Labs in Action stories help prospective partners, policy makers, taxpayers, and other non-experts understand federal tech transfer’s value. Raising awareness outside the federal lab community supports the FLC’s mission to increase the impact of federal tech transfer.
