  • Message from the Technology Transfer Coordinator and Director, Office of Technology Transitions

    The Report on Technology Transfer and Related Partnering Activities at the National Laboratories and Other Facilities for Fiscal Year 2014 (Report) is prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Technology Transfer and Commercialization Act of 2000:

    It is the continuing responsibility of the federal Government to ensure the full use of the results of the Nations federal investment in research and development. To this end, the federal Government shall strive where appropriate to transfer federally owned or originated technology to State and local governments and to the private sector. Each federal agency which operates or directs one or more federal laboratories or which conducts activities under sections 207 and 209 of title 35 shall report annually to the Office of Management and Budget, as part of the agencys annual budget submission, on the activities performed by that agency and its federal laboratories under the provisions of this section and of sections 207 and 209 of title 35.

    Pursuant to the legislative language this report is being provided to the following Members of Congress:

    The Honorable Joseph Biden President of the Senate

    The Honorable Paul Ryan

    Speaker of the House The Honorable Thad Cochran Chairman, Senate Committee on Appropriations The Honorable Barbara Mikulski Ranking Member, Senate Committee on Appropriations

    Report on Technology Transfer Activities | Page iii

    Executive Summary In FY 2014, DOE and its laboratories and facilities managed and executed 15,945 technology transfer-related transactions. These transactions include but are not limited to 702 Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs); 2,021 Strategic Partnership Projects (SPP) (formerly called Work-for-Others Agreements) involving non-federal entities (NFEs); 67 Agreements for Commercializing Technology (ACT); 5,861 active licenses of intellectual property; and 6,748 user projects. In addition, DOE national laboratories and facilities disclosed 1,588 inventions; filed 1,144 patent applications (962 U.S. and 182 foreign); were issued 822 patents (693 U.S. and 129 foreign); and commercialized 482 technologies. Associated with these activities, DOE's laboratories and facilities reported approximately $235.1 million in SPP non-federal sponsor funds-in, $64.3 million in non-federal sponsor funds-in for CRADAs, $29.0 million in non-federal sponsor funds-in for ACTs, $37.8 million in licensing income, and nearly $23.3 million in earned royalties. The work conducted at DOEs national laboratories and National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) plants and sites has provided the scientific and technical foundation for many technologies in the market today. In addition, technology transition activities support the Administrations Lab-to-Market Cross-Agency Priority Goal, which is focused on accelerating the transfer of federally funded research from the laboratory to the commercial marketplace. These activities are confirmation of DOEs robust technical enterprise, which is a result of continuous outreach and partnering with the private-sector. They contribute to DOEs mission and further strengthen the capabilities of DOEs laboratories and facilities. The extent of this work is a reflection, as well, of the continued confidence in DOE held by thousands of private partners who work with DOE in these ways. This Report describes these activities and outlines how DOE ensures appropriate management and oversight with prevailing policy and authorities. Finally, the Office of Technology Transitions would like to acknowledge the valued role played by the many professional practitioners of technology transfer throughout the DOE complex who are committed to helping technologies transition to the market and foster connections among stages of research, development, demonstration and deployment (RDD&D) that are needed to reach commercial impact. DOE encourages these practitioners and their management to continue this excellent work. The resulting contributions of their work add significantly to our Nation's economic competitiveness and to DOEs mission is to expand the commercial impact of DOEs portfolio of RDD&D activities over the short, medium and long term.
