To assist businesses with R&D and accessing resources available in federal labs, the Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer (FLC) launched FLC Business—a free next-generation search tool for federal laboratory resources.
Behind the doors of the nation’s federal laboratories lie cutting-edge facilities and equipment, ready-to-license technologies, funding, and some of the world’s top scientists and engineers with expertise and resources available for anyone looking to advance their business or research and development (R&D). To assist businesses with accessing these resources, the Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer (FLC) launched FLC Business—a free next-generation search tool for federal laboratory resources.
FLC Business is the most comprehensive federal laboratory data store available, and is designed to help businesses and innovators search federal laboratory resources, connect with federal laboratories, and engage with experts to start the right T2 process or collaborative agreement that will meet their R&D needs.
“The vast amount of federal laboratory information on this one-of-a-kind site should be a clear sign to all entrepreneurs that our national laboratories are open for business,” said Paul Zielinski, FLC Chair. “FLC Business promotes federal innovation through collaboration, and provides a much-needed connection between the public and private sectors to fulfill industry market needs.”
R&D professionals looking to further their own innovations or use the resources available in the 300-plus federal laboratories can search the growing database with keywords, by agency, by location and more. To ensure a better understanding of this unique tool, the FLC created a short video entitled “Accessing Federal Laboratory Resources With FLC Business.” The video explains how easy it is to leverage federal resources for business advancement.
The most recognizable technologies we use today—like GPS, memory foam, Gardasil and others—were first developed in a federal laboratory. It was only through technology transfer agreements and public-private partnerships that these techs made powerful economic and societal impacts. FLC Business houses thousands of similar possibilities that are waiting to be discovered by entrepreneurs eager to take their ideas and federal innovations to market.
Computer scientists at Carnegie Mellon University say neural networks and supervised machine learning techniques can efficiently characterize cells that have been studied using single cell RNA-sequencing (scRNA-seq). This finding could help researchers identify new cell subtypes and differentiate between healthy and diseased cells.
Large-scale supercomputing is essential to solving complex questions about our world. But storage platforms essential for these advanced computer systems have been stuck in a rigid framework that required users to either choose between customization of features or high availability. Now, researchers have found a way to give high-performance computing data systems the flexibility to thrive with a framework called BespoKV, perhaps helping to one day achieve the HPC goal of performing at the exascale, or 1 billion billion calculations per second.READ MORE
