Licensing Berkeley Lab Technology and Co-Development
Berkeley Lab has a long history of licensing technologies. Classically, licensing is an arm-length transaction whereby a company acquires a piece of technology for a licensing fee and royalty. More details about this type of project can be found on Berkeley Lab's Innovation & Partnerships Office website.
Another interesting model is the case where a company acquires a technology and further co-develops it with Berkeley Lab. A current example is the co-development of a specific lithium-sulfur battery with ZAF Energy Systems.
