Connect.  Innovate.  Succeed.

Learn how you can leverage the power of the national labs to grow your business.

The US Departments of Energy (DOE) and Commerce are committed to supporting US manufacturing through connecting businesses with the resources they need to succeed. Home to some of the world’s most powerful lasers, fastest super computers, and talented researchers, the DOE’s national labs offer a wealth of technical resources to help industry develop new products and services.

The MITEC (Manufacturing Impacts Through Energy and Commerce) Boot Camp is designed to help small- to medium-sized enterprises access national lab capabilities and assets.

Learn how you can engage with three DOE National Labs—National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL), Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL), and Jefferson Lab—to scale a material, utilize a set of mixed equipment for testing with expert advice from a scientist and/or engineer, and more. Leading experts will provide information on several federal funding opportunities to work with the labs.

You will also have a chance to learn how to work with Genedge to integrate new ideas and technologies into your manufacturing.
