NIST Boulder Labs Technology Showcase


The National Institute of Standards and Technology Boulder Labs is hosting a Technology Showcase on Sept. 13 in the Building 1 Auditorium to show off select technologies, discuss how interested companies can make use of those technologies, illustrate the process for licensing or sharing those technologies and providing brief lab tours.

While NIST does not patent a lot of its novel and groundbreaking technologies, they do share that knowledge with businesses. Providing a framework to share their technologies, as well as explain the process of gaining access to their work, is the primary purpose of this Showcase.
