Innovation Resources List

Product and process innovation is a team sport -- and by working with government labs, nonprofits in economic development, etc. -- as well as specialized business services, you can take your product quality and performance up a notch. Here are some quality innovation resources for your to check into.

Find green business solutions
You might find helpful information, technical assistance, funding or connections at these innovation organizations and resources. These national labs are funded with billions of our tax dollars to research fundamental issues related to national defense, energy and environmental impact of various social and industrial policies.

Most, if not all, of these nationally funded laboratories make research available for intellectual property licensing to universities, businesses and government programs.

This is a huge effort -- and most companies do not avail themselves of the technical information, training and intellectual property available in our national treasure chest. It might be worth looking into. I've found that these labs test environmental products as small and marketable as insulation, windows, highly reflective paint, and SIP building materials. Check them out... you could be glad you did!
