NEW! 2019 Annual Report
IPO’s Innovation Cycle
Successfully moving technologies from the lab into beneficial applications and outcomes requires behind-the-scenes evaluation, coordination, and communication among multiple stakeholders inside and outside Berkeley Lab.
On March 1, 2018, the Innovation and Partnerships Office split into the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) and the Strategic Partnerships Office (SPO). SPO handles collaborative research contracts and grants along with inter-lab work orders for both federal and non-federal research partners.
