Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA)
CRADAs are agreements made between Lincoln Laboratory and a private company to work on joint R&D projects addressing national security needs.
Lincoln Laboratory has an aggressive program designed to give small businesses the greatest possible opportunity to participate in Laboratory acquisitions and obtain awards.
Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) are programs designed to fund and assist early-stage R&D performed by small companies.
If you are ready to test or validate your technology but are unable to access test facilities in the private sector, consider entering into a test agreement that will allow your technology to be tested in Lincoln Laboratory's state-of-the-art facilities.
If a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) is required to begin discussions between Lincoln Laboratory and an outside organization, the Laboratory's Technology and Contracts Office (TCO) can facilitate this process. NDAs must be requested by a Laboratory employee who will be the primary recipient and/or discloser of the confidential information. For inquiries regarding NDAs, please contact TCO at (781) 981-5824.
