The U.S. government invests nearly $150B each year in federal R&D for cutting edge research at federal labs and universities across the country, as well as small business research and commercialization efforts. As a result of this investment, companies and entrepreneurs may find resources — including research facilities and licensing and funding opportunities — that can support the response to COVID-19. NIST’s Technology Partnership Office has identified the following online resources:
