TCP seeks candidate technologies for DOE Tech Transfer Program
Due Aug. 3
The Technology Commercialization and Partnerships Division (TCP) seeks candidate technologies for submission to and participation in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Technology Transfer Opportunity Program (TTO).
The due date to recommend a technology to TCP is Friday, Aug. 3, 2018. A proposal is not required.
Please contact TCP’s Stephanie Teran at ext. 2-7650 if you have a candidate technology and wish to work with a small company on a TTO project. Please also contact Teran with questions.
TTO was established by DOE’s Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer Office (SBIR/STTR) with the goal of collaborating with companies to introduce national laboratory technologies to the marketplace, where they can make maximum impact.
The national laboratories individually select and submit candidate technologies to SBIR/STTR, which then screens the technologies and posts a subset for review by interested companies to be potentially included in a future funding opportunity announcement (FOA).
TCP requests that only patented or patent-pending technologies be submitted. Technologies that are submitted can’t be licensed in the interim.
At this time, the following DOE program offices are expected to participate:
- Office of Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation (NA)
- Office Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability (OE)
- Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE)
- Office of Fossil Energy (FE)
- Office of Fusion Energy Sciences (FES)
- Office of High Energy Physics (HEP)
- Office of Nuclear Energy (NE)
DOE is looking for candidates relevant to the DOE SBIR FY2018 Phase 1 Release 2 FOA (see timeline below).
