“I am grateful for all that you are doing on behalf of the community of science across Colorado. I am glad to participate and support this important group - and to recognize the excellence of research and technology commercialization brought together by CO-LABS. Keep up the great work! It is deeply appreciated.”
Walter G. Copan, Ph.D., Under Secretary of Commerce for Standards and Technology & Director, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
For the Colorado Space Business Roundtable (CSBR), many of our members are small and medium businesses who may not understand the value of the labs that are in our own backyard - CO-LABS provides tours and opportunities for sharing information that allows our membership to tap into the work of amazing scientists and create new partnerships. I believe it is important to keep these lines of communication and opportunity open for all.”
