Within business and government circles, attention has recently been given to the need to strengthen the ties between federal laboratories and the private sector. Federal Lab Technology Transfer examines current technology transfer efforts between these two sectors and discusses the prospects for increased transfer to private companies. This book identifies problems and issues that have created the "steer clear" attitude of private businesses toward the federal bureaucratic red tape related to the transfer process. The essays highlight critical factors contributing to the success or failure of the technology transfer process. Finally, this work calls for a challenge for action so that the United States itself will be the primary beneficiary of the "vast new technological resource" represented by our federal laboratories.
