As SLAC’s scientific mission has broadened, the laboratory is also expanding its relationships with industry, potential funding agencies and suppliers of key goods and services.
Research Partnerships & Technology Commercialization
SLAC's Research Partnerships & Technology Commercialization (RP&TC) group focuses on identifying and managing SLAC-developed intellectual property and establishing new research and licensing relationships with the private sector.
SLAC is establishing a Supplier Management Program (SMP) to actively manage relationships with suppliers of key goods and services, from commodities to construction projects. The program aims to increase supply chain efficiency, improve quality and consistency, shorten contract lead times and ensure a stable supply base.
