NNSA’s Technology Transfer Program, within the Office of Strategic Partnerships, helps facilitate the journey from a researcher’s workbench to your back pocket. The technologies developed to maintain a safe, secure and effective nuclear deterrent and counter global threats have also benefited many people’s day-to-day lives. By partnering with the private sector and others, the Nuclear Security Enterprise is able to commercialize technologies and share innovations from the national laboratories, plants, and sites with the public. A dynamic process of evaluation and analysis, patent protection and licensing, and cooperation with commercialization partners brings the products of brilliant scientific minds to market.
