FLC Planner

The FLC Planner: Federal tech transfer in pictures

Not your average calendar

Because many technologies developed by federal laboratories involve complex concepts and technical terms, an engaging, well-constructed photo can sometimes convey the story of a technology more effectively than written or spoken words. This is the concept underlying the FLC Planner, an annual 14-month printed calendar featuring large, glossy photos illustrating federal technologies - one for each month. It is delivered to more than 10,000 recipients throughout the FLC community, including members of Congress, scientists, tech transfer professionals, academia, and industry.

Ready to submit for 2023?

Take some time to review this year's guidelines and frequently asked questions. When you're done, submit your FLC Planner application.

The deadline for submissions is 8pm ET on August 26, 2022. No more than eight submissions per lab will be accepted.

Handpicked pics

The photo selection process is very competitive. The FLC staff works with a team of judges to select a group of eye-catching photos that represent a broad cross section of federal labs, agencies, and technology sectors - creating a publication that can be used to promote the collective contributions of the FLC community in addition to the achievements of individual labs.

Popular science

The FLC Planner is extremely popular with federal laboratories and their partners, which enhances its value in support of the FLC’s mission to increase the impact of federal technology transfer. With Planners displayed in offices, cubicles and homes for 14 months, the product's message of federal lab success is one with staying power.
