Doing Business with DOE Laboratories
December 12, 2000
The DOE Laboratory Coordinating Council (LCC) has prepared a guide to Doing Business with the Laboratories of the Laboratory Coordinating Council. The guide was designed to help potential users understand how they can take advantage of the expertise offered by Department of Energy (DOE) laboratories and facilities. It explains how DOE and the LCC worked to simplify collaborations, address industry suggestions for uniform terms and conditions, and clarify intellectual property issues to make the laboratories more accessible to potential users. The guide also includes a detailed list of each laboratory's areas of expertise and offers examples of successes that illustrate how the new approach works.
You can access the entire guide or just the Executive Summary on the LCC Web site at www.oit.doe.gov/lcc/doing_business.shtml. The LCC is interested in receiving your feedback on this new document. We invite you to review the guide and e-mail your comments or suggestions to us at DoingBusiness@nrel.gov.
The Laboratory Coordinating Council fosters and
facilitates collaborative research and development efforts by bringing the
expertise and capabilities of 16 DOE national laboratories and facilities to the
Industries of the Future.
