• Brookhaven Lab licenses its technologies to companies that invest in further development and then bring them to the marketplace. Between FY 2004 and FY 2009, the Lab entered into 92 new agreements for further development and commercial use of technologies born at Brookhaven Lab. During the same period, the Laboratory generated more than $42 million in royalties from companies to which it had licensed its technologies in the past.
• Brookhaven National Laboratory combines impressive strengths in basic science with the ability to translate its intellectual capital into solutions to some of the nation’s most pressing problems. The Laboratory works to move new knowledge from discovery to deployment in several ways.
The Laboratory puts its intellectual capital to work by collaborating with companies on applied research and development projects. The Lab’s partners on such projects include major corporations such as General Motors, Johnson & Johnson, and United Technologies. But they also include small to mid-sized New York State companies engaged in developing a wide range of new technologies. These companies include:
• Advanced Energy Systems, located in Medford;
• Clear Vascular, located in New York City;
• SuperPower, Inc., located in Schenectady.
Brookhaven Lab is also working with public agencies and industry partners in a variety of collaborative efforts aimed at addressing major national needs – and at the same time strengthening New York State’s economy. Examples include:
• The Laboratory’s participation in the State’s Smart Grid Consortium and the Battery and Energy Storage Technology Consortium.
• Brookhaven’s partnership with Stony Brook University in its Advanced Energy Center (AEC), a research facility created to develop alternative energy sources and protect natural resources by taking advantage of cuttingedge technologies.
• The Lab’s collaboration with BP Solar and the Long Island Power Authority in the development of New York State’s largest solar electric power plant – a 37-megawatt power plant, to be constructed on the Brookhaven Lab campus and scheduled for completion in 2011.
