In case you missed it: Lab-to-Market program info session
On Friday, June 21, 2019, the Technology Commercialization and Partnerships division hosted an info session about the new Lab-to-Market program (L2M).
L2M is a laboratory-funded technology maturation program that aims to broaden the scope and increase the number of Argonne-developed technologies licensed to industry.
Details on L2M criteria, the process and timeline can be found on Inside Argonne. Preliminary proposals are due by Monday, July 8, 2019.
Licensed technologies have generated significantly enhanced impact through commercialization. Ideal L2M candidate technologies are Argonne late-stage technologies that:
- Are beyond proof-of-concept but are still too early-stage for investment by the private sector; and
- Are no longer being funded by the program sponsor for further maturation
L2M will initiate a competitive process to identify, select, and mature Argonne’s most promising late-stage technologies. The program will provide funds to develop these technologies to a defined proof point judged to be of value to potential industry partners. Awards may be made for up to $200,000, but budgets of less than $150,000 will be given significant preference. Funding is planned for project durations of up to approximately one year.
