Has your director gone above and beyond to foster tech transfer at your lab this year? Don’t forget to say thank you by nominating him or her as Laboratory Director of the Year! This is the last chance to submit nominations—you only have until Wednesday, Dec. 3.

This award, for directors of FLC laboratories who have made maximum contributions to support technology transfer activities in their organizations, acknowledges directors’ personal involvement in technology transfer efforts; the impact directors’ actions have made, on both the lab and industry; and exceptional tech transfer that occurred with directors’ support. If your director’s efforts meet those criteria, be sure to tell his or her story with your nomination!

Directors who have advanced tech transfer through staff encouragement, recognition, and training; process improvements; outreach and networking with industry; financial support; and participation in the FLC and other tech transfer organizations—and who have demonstrated real industry results such as new businesses created or financial returns—have a good chance to win.

For specific instructions and criteria, download the nomination form available at our Awards page. Read carefully and follow the submission guidelines to the letter—and be sure to submit on time! (Need help figuring out how to tell your director’s story? Watch our short video for pointers.)

For questions about the Laboratory Director of the Year Award or the awards process, contact the FLC Awards Program Coordinator, Michele Chambers.

We’re looking forward to learning all about your directors’ great efforts. Best of luck!
