DOE Unveils Web-Based National Lab Data Access Hub

The Energy Department has launched an online platform designed to help investors and developers find information from DOE’s network of 17 national laboratories.

DOE said Tuesday the web-based Lab Partnering Service offers a single access point for industry to harness research, technical expertise, technology and intellectual property at the labs.

The tool allows users to submit questions to a lab’s technology transfer office and seek  navigational assistance via the department’s R&D ecosystem.

“The launch of the Lab Partnering Service represents a big step in reducing barriers that often limit energy investors from partnering with our national labs,” said Energy Secretary Rick Perry.

“The LPS consolidates information and capabilities at the national labs to increase public access, allowing industry and academia to fully utilize these vital scientific resources.”

DOE added the platform provides users access to ready-to-license technologies and serves as a search engine to obtain data about lab-connected patents.
