Vendor Visits

As part of our Small Business Program, we would also like to invite you to come in for a vendor visit. A vendor visit allows a single vendor to set up a table in our main cafeteria to present products and services during the hours of 11am- 2pm. Please note, this is not a meeting, but an ad-hoc networking opportunity with any interested passers-by. We encourage you to bring visuals and any products evidencing your work. If you would like to participate in this popular program, please fill out the attached Vendor Visit Request Form. To participate, your company’s representatives attending the visit must be U.S. citizens or permanent legal residents (i.e. Green Card holders). Please note, MIT LL does not provide audio-visual special equipment, electrical/line cord, or outlet strips during your visit. The use of recording devices and cameras are prohibited while at the Laboratory.

Collaborative Research and Development Agreements

In addition to subcontracting opportunities, MIT LL seeks to collaborate and participate in technology transfer with the business community by means of Collaborative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs). MIT LL may provide technical resources and expertise for these CRADA programs. We invite you to review our external website if any of our expertise can be shared by you in any collaboration effort. The Laboratory is also a unique partner for various Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) and Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) programs provided by the Federal Government. We have successfully worked Phase I and II efforts together with small businesses. MIT LL can help explore your company’s technological potential and assist in providing the research and development bedrock essential for realizing both commercial and scientific success.
