Webinar series: Funding and partnership opportunities with the U.S. Department of Energy and the Urban Tech Hub
Company. Jun 11, 2020
The Urban Tech Hub at Company is excited to announce a new webinar series in coordination with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Technology Transitions and the NYC Economic Development Corporation. What was originally conceived as a one-day workshop at Company has transformed into the Funding and Partnership Opportunities with the U.S. Department of Energy – 2020 Webinar Series.
The series connects early and growth-stage companies, accelerators and incubators, and university entrepreneurial scientists and engineers to the Department of Energy’s latest program initiatives and partnering opportunities. Attendees will hear from DOE senior leaders and program managers: the administrators and decision-makers for current and upcoming funding and partnership opportunities.
Founded in 1977, the U.S. Department of Energy has its roots in the historic Manhattan Project. Today, the DOE operates one of the world’s largest scientific research enterprises. Through its system of 17 National Laboratories, the DOE drives innovation and commercialization, working with America’s private sector, universities, and nonprofits to turn research into reality.
This biweekly series kicked off on Thursday, May 28th, with an explanatory introduction to the various funding and partnership opportunities. Participants heard from Paul Dabbar, the DOE Under Secretary for Science, Conner Prochaska, the DOE Chief Commercialization Officer, and Matthew Biasiny, the Manager for the Savannah River National Laboratory’s Contracts and Technology Partnerships Office and Chairperson for the DOE’s Technology Transfer Working Group (TTWG).
