Preparing technologies for an eventual transfer from lab to market is a key element of ARPA-E's mission, specifically called for in our statutory mandate from Congress. ARPA-E project teams are asked to prepare a Technology-to-Market Plan, which serves as a roadmap for planned activities to assess and advance the commercial viability of their technology. ARPA-E’s T2M Program assists teams in constructing and carrying out these plans. ARPA-E’s goal is to help project teams develop the knowledge and skills they need to prepare for and expedite private-sector deployment of their technologies.
ARPA-E recognizes that each project team has its own vision for commercialization. ARPA-E’s Tech-to-Market Team offers perspectives on the various approaches, but ARPA-E does not endorse a single strategy for how commercialization should occur. Once a project team has identified a strategy, the ARPA-E T2M team works to inform, connect, and advocate in support of the commercial success of projects, as outlined below:
