Synapse Libate & Learn #17: Fueling Innovation with the Department of Energy
Innovators at every level of research, business and government have been collaborating in battle against COVID. To support innovators in this critical fight, the U.S. Department of Energy has made available a suite of powerful resources through its National Laboratory system, one of the world’s preeminent scientific research enterprises. This sprawling complex of facilities and expert researchers houses two of the top three fastest computers on Earth, the world’s brightest light source, and world-class research into the life sciences and human health.
Join us for an in-depth look at the opportunities for Florida’s innovators to collaborate with the Department of Energy in a conversation with Conner Prochaska, DOE’s Chief Commercialization Officer and Director of the Office of Technology Transitions, and Paul Sohl, Rear Adm. USN (ret), CEO, Florida High Tech Corridor Council, an economic development initiative of three of the country’s largest research institutions: University of Central Florida, University of South Florida and University of Florida, facilitating collaborations between partners in academia, industry and economic development across 23 counties.
