Technology Transfer Activities
Most of Reclamation's technologies are transferred through public dissemination, while others require partnering with the private sector mature, mass produce and commercialize the technology into market-ready products.
If an industry partner is needed to transfer the technology into a market-ready product, Reclamation uses the authorities available under Federal technology transfer legislation to protect ideas and technologies, as needed, and form research and licensing partnerships with U.S. manufacturing industries. Reclamation's Technology Transfer Program implements these authorities on behalf of Reclamation.
Technology Transfer Agreements
Reclamation has 31 agreements and has received $872,900 from these agreements as of calendar year January 2012.
