Examples of assistance include:

  • advising on existing or emerging products

  • performing scientific peer reviews
  • recommending energy conservation and environmental technologies.

Small businesses that use PNNL's free Technology Assistance Program are eligible to receive a royalty-free license for technology developed through the program.
