The Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer (FLC) is the nationwide network of federal laboratories that provides the forum to develop strategies and opportunities for linking laboratory mission technologies and expertise with the marketplace. Approximately 300 federal laboratories and centers and their parent departments and agencies are members of the FLC.

Bruce is employed with Sandia National Laboratories and is also President of i-GATE (Innovation for Green Advanced Transportation Excellence), a nonprofit, regional public-private partnership that includes over 40 university, state and local government, industry, and venture capital partners. Designated as one of the first six innovation hubs by the State of California Governor’s Office in 2010, i-GATE supports small businesses developing green transportation and clean-energy technologies.
