ORNL launches COVID-19 rapid access licensing program to help fight pandemic -

The Department of Energy's (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has launched a program designed to accelerate deployment of innovations that may help fight the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 Rapid Access Licensing Program will allow companies to license these select technologies at no cost for a year.

In collaboration with researchers, ORNL's Technology Transfer Office is creating a growing portfolio of inventions available to license through the program. The licenses are nonexclusive, meaning more than one person can hold the right to use the technology. Interested licensees must demonstrate intent to use ORNL's innovations to address COVID-19 and commit to disseminating resulting products as widely and quickly as possible. Only US entities, companies and universities are eligible.

Alternative licenses will be available for companies creating products that require exclusivity to support large development investments, such as for diagnostic platforms, drug delivery systems, therapies and vaccines.

ORNL has quickly responded to the COVID-19 pandemic through its research efforts in computational science, advanced manufacturing, data science and neutron science. Inventions available to license through the program represent ORNL strengths in these areas as well as in areas ranging from biological sciences to spectrometry to next-generation materials.

ORNL joins DOE national laboratories across the nation in the fight against COVID-19. Additional information on DOE technologies, facilities, experts and resources accessible to partners working against the virus is available through the recently announced Lab Partnering Service COVID-19 Portal.

UT-Battelle manages ORNL for DOE's Office of Science. The single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, the Office of Science is working to address some of the most pressing challenges.
