INL follows Sandia in implementing “Rapid Technology Deployment Program”

Following the model of Sandia National Laboratories which announced last month that it would open its portfolio of technology patents for free licensing, Idaho National Laboratory (INL) will open a substantial portion of its unencumbered patent portfolio to any U.S. company that can use available inventions to help solve the current national crisis and drive strong economic development.

The “Rapid Technology Deployment Program” allows any U.S. company will be able to obtain a term-limited, non-negotiable, royalty-free, nonexclusive license to any INL-owned U.S. patent not otherwise subject to a contractual obligation. There are about 140 pieces of INL intellectual property available for licensing, all of which would carry these favorable terms through the end of the calendar year 2020. Read more here.
