More than a third of the U.S. Department of Energy’s $18 billion budget is spent fueling energy in key industries in which Florida is a leader. From powering life sciences innovations - including a special grant for those addressing the COVID pandemic - to cybersecurity, energy modernization, facilitating space exploration, modeling and simulation and hard sciences, the Department of Energy has unparalleled resources to support innovation. The U.S. Department of Energy has made available a suite of powerful resources through its National Laboratory system, one of the world’s preeminent scientific research enterprises. This sprawling complex of facilities and expert researchers houses two of the top three fastest computers on Earth, the world's brightest light source, and world-class research into the life sciences and human health.

Join us for an in-depth look at the opportunities for Florida's innovators to collaborate with the Department of Energy in a conversation with Conner Prochaska, DOE’s Chief Commercialization Officer and Director of the Office of Technology Transitions, and Paul Sohl, Rear Adm. USN (ret), CEO, Florida High Tech Corridor Council, an economic development initiative of three of the country’s largest research institutions – University of Central Florida, University of South Florida and University of Florida –to attract, retain and grow high tech industry and the workforce to support it in a 23-county region.
