DOE Laboratory Modernization and Technology Transfer Act of 2015 (H.R. 1158)
Ed was the Lead Democrat on the bill introduced by Rep. Hultgren
This bill was included in H.R. 589 which passed the House on January 24, 2017.
  • Provides important tools to spur and accelerate the transfer of new technologies developed at national laboratories. Extends the Agreement for Commercializing Technology (ACT) pilot program for two more years. In addition, the bill significantly broadens the range of companies able to participate in the program allowing for more flexible partnership agreements and allows labs to use their technology transfer funds for activities which identify and demonstrate commercial opportunities.
  • The Department of Energy’s national laboratories and research programs have been the birthplace to some of our most revolutionary technologies. When this research is harnessed by entrepreneurs and business leaders, start-ups with one or two employees can grow into companies that create hundreds of quality jobs.
  • H.R. 1158 also removes burdens which currently prevent many universities like the CO School of Mines and other non-profit research institutions from working with national laboratories.
