technology transfer

The Office of Partnerships and Technology Transfer is sponsoring a virtual lecture series in entrepreneurship and commercialization. This series will include successful entrepreneurs, who will tell their stories about taking technologies from a lab to the market. Other topics will include innovative models for lab-industry collaboration from other DOE national laboratories. All Fermilab personnel, users, students and guest researchers are invited to participate in this series.    This webinar will take place on Dec. 16 from 2-3 p.m. CST via…

An important part of the new vision for IARC at Fermilab is increasing regional engagement – capturing activities that bring regional institutions together to exchange information and resources and increase our collective impact. As an early step toward this new vision, Fermilab, along with University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory, hosted an online workshop on Nov. 9 focusing on strategic opportunities to collaborate on artificial intelligence research: “Partnering to Advance AI Research & Development.”

APPLICATION: 2020-21 POLSKY CENTER I-CORPS PROGRAM The Polsky Center I-Corps Program is a National Science Foundation-funded entrepreneurial program for teams working on ideas in the science, technology, mathematics, and engineering (STEM) fields. Teams including faculty, students, staff and alumni from the University of Chicago, partner institutions, and regional universities may apply for the program. No previous business or entrepreneurship experience is required. Team eligibility requirements include: a minimum of two teammates, co-located in the Chicagoland region, who are committed to attending all…

“What is the practical application of your research?” This question is frequently asked of particle physicists. In this talk, Fermilab scientist Jennifer Raaf presents a few practical medical applications that have been enabled by fundamental scientific research undertaken by Fermilab employees. In particular, the talk focuses on a novel ventilator called the Mechanical Ventilator Milano, which was developed for the treatment of COVID-19 patients.

CDAC Discovery Challenge Up to $250K in research grants; pre-proposal applications due Nov. 2. The Discovery Challenge is a new seed funding program at the Center for Data and Computing, or CDAC, that accelerates the research-to-impact process through the development of research-based, use-inspired data science technologies and tools. The Discovery Challenge also requires the inclusion of external collaborators from industry, local government or other stakeholders that can provide critical input and accelerate the transition of research into practical use. Projects…

From Tech Briefs, Oct. 1, 2020: Fermilab has developed a high-power, high-energy, superconducting radio-frequency electron gun for advanced metal additive manufacturing applications. The novel design is based on a technique that eliminates liquid helium entirely and dramatically reduces the complexity of the system.

IARC at Fermilab’s “Five Buckets” represent the five major activities that make up the IARC mission and strategy. Some of these buckets are an extension or continuation of the team’s work over the last five years. Others are new efforts and initiatives. All will increase the lab’s already great impact on the world.
