R&D TTF: Unlocking the Potential for Technology Transition from Federally Funded R&D

Friday, November 17, 11:15 - 11:25 AM

Speaker(s): Vicki A. Barbur, PhD

Room #: Osprey Ballroom

Government Laboratories, National Laboratories, University Affiliated Research Centers (UARCs) and Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs) are expected to return value to the nation by making their relevant inventions available to commercial industry as appropriate. This transfer of knowledge and technology to both government and the public is especially important when the underlying innovation has been generated through government funding.

This presentation will discuss the elements of technology transfer and outline some of the approaches that MITRE has used successfully, including the development of and collaboration with “Innovation Bridges.” For example, MITRE works with Innovation Accelerators, Incubators and Technical Hubs to discover and bring to bear innovations that could benefit government agencies and help connect startup companies with relevant government partners.
