While the Department of Energy is the primary sponsor of research at
Brookhaven National Laboratory, several paths exist along which
companies can work with Brookhaven’s scientific talent to accelerate innovation
in their commercial and industrial fields. Brookhaven has a streamlined
process to facilitate research engagement, with both
non-proprietary and proprietary user agreements available. Companies
may obtain patent rights subject to the retention of certain
rights by the government.
