Each year, billions of US taxpayer dollars are invested into research and development (R&D) at our nation’s federal labs. When our labs partner with nonfederal organizations, these innovations and breakthrough discoveries transition out of the laboratory and into the marketplace where they have a positive and lasting impact on both the economy and our society.
