The National MagLab, headquartered at Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL, is the only lab of its kind in the United States and is the premier destination for scientists and engineers from all over the world to conduct foundational research on new materials, energy solutions and the cells that underlie life itself using powerful magnetic fields. In 2018 the MagLab Corporation (MagCorp) was created to be the first destination ever for industry and defense magnet technology development, providing access to the MagLab’s world-leading experts for feasibility studies, prototyping or commercial development. It is an innovation foundry where science-based solutions are applied to industrial market-originated problems at industrial speeds.
MagCorp has been created to become a vessel for industry and defense magnet technology development, acting as an “agent” of the MagLab to provide clients with a clear and predefined process for applied magnetism research and development. MagCorp is a mining company focused on new untapped industry interactions for magnet technology development and aligns with the mission of the Magnetic Task Force (Tallahassee, FL) in fostering a vibrant innovation ecosystem for magnetically enabled products and services. This is a new model for industry-university interactions as it relates to intellectual property and provides MagCorp with a major differentiator in terms of the value of service to its clients.
