The Lab-to-Market (L2M) initiative began in 2014 to increase the economic impact of federally funded research and development by accelerating and improving the transfer of new technologies from the laboratory to the commercial marketplace. L2M is supported through the efforts of the National Science and Technology Council, numerous interagency working groups, and has been identified as a Cross-Agency Priority Goal in two prior administrations.
