Federal Laboratory Consortium Enters into Partnership with the Florida High Tech Corridor

Released: June 17, 2024

WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 17, 2024) The Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer (FLC) has initiated a strategic partnership with the Florida High Tech Corridor (The Corridor) as part of an ongoing campaign to encourage economic growth and public benefit from research and technology developed in federal laboratories.   

Signed Feb. 14, 2024, the memorandum of understanding between FLC and The Corridor outlines a collaboration in which the two organizations will promote and participate in mutually beneficial activities, such as sponsorships and special events, to facilitate the transfer of federal laboratory research and technology into the hands of Florida startups and innovative small businesses for further development.   

This partnership holds tremendous potential to create strong connections between the cutting-edge research of our nation’s top scientists and hundreds of innovative businesses within our region. Together, we can empower Central Florida businesses to elevate their communities through technological innovation and create lasting, positive change,” said Paul Sohl, CEO of The Corridor.

The Corridor is an initiative of three research universities – the University of Central Florida, the University of South Florida and the University of Florida – created to catalyze an ecosystem that supports the needs and aspirations of innovators who are driving high-tech economic growth in a 23-county region. Through programs such as its Cenfluence industry clustering initiative, FL Federal & State Partnership Program (FL FAST) and the Matching Grants Research Program (MGRP), as well as its sponsorship of other entrepreneurial support organizations, The Corridor supports a network of hundreds of businesses throughout Florida.

This collaboration with The Corridor will strengthen the FLC’s ability to support technology transfer in the southeast region working with UCF, USF, UF and high-tech local industry,” said Paul Zielinski, FLC executive director. “We’re excited to work together to build stronger relationships with both the academic community and high-tech sector, leading to more successful technology transfer activities that will benefit society.”
