                              The Office of Technology Transitions

The Office of Technology Transitions (OTT) serves as the central hub for the technology transfer activities across the Department of Energy’s extensive R&D enterprise. At OTT, we work to ensure groundbreaking scientific discoveries achieve their maximum public return and impact, advancing the economic, energy, and national security interests of the United States. Getting that done means streamlining access to our user facilities at our 17 National Labs and sites, our world-class scientific researchers, and our sprawling portfolio of intellectual property – fostering strong internal and external partnerships that guide innovations from the lab toward the marketplace.

Technology transfer is a complex and dynamic process, and OTT is here to help you connect with DOE-powered innovation to advance discoveries and commercialize transformative, impactful technologies.
