Since 2009, CO-LABS has convened a special committee of academic researchers, technology transfer experts and science and engineering professionals to review nominations from Colorado’s labs. Through a thoughtful and thorough process this group selects projects that have had a significant global, national or state impact resulting from a scientific breakthrough, change in public policy or development of a new technology.

 

CO-LABS is a non-profit consortium of federal laboratories, research institutions, businesses and economic development organizations that provide financial and in-kind support for programs that promote the retention and expansion of Colorado scientific resources. Through events, economic analyses, strategic communications and networking activities we work to:

 

• PROMOTE Colorado as a global leader in research and technology

 

• EDUCATE the public about the labs’ impact and importance of sustained funding for research

 

• CONNECT the labs, universities and businesses to facilitate partnerships and technology transfer
