Research Facilities

Boulder is home to a number of federally funded research facilities. Several of these labs are world leaders in climate, weather, geo-physical and renewable energy research. Others have a strong presence in measurements and standards, telecommunications science, and viral and bacterial diseases.

Many of the labs make their testing equipment available to businesses and offer cooperative research agreements. CO-LABS can connect businesses with the right person at the right lab.

CO-LABS is a coalition of federally funded scientific laboratories, universities, businesses, local governments, and legislators who have come together to establish Colorado as a global leader in research, technology, and technology transfer. CO-LABS educates the public, businesses, educational organizations and governmental entities about the value of the federally funded laboratories, creates connections between these sectors, and supports retention and expansion of Colorado’s scientific resources.
